"The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed - and hence clamorous to be led to safety - by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary." -H.L. Mencken

To the accompaniment of much fanfare and hoopla, the British government has released Sir Nicholas Stern’s Stern Review on the Economics of Climate Change, a report that it commissioned but that it labels “independent.”

At the end of OPAR, Peikoff appends an Epilogue entitled “THE DUEL BETWEEN PLATO AND ARISTOTLE.” If one expects an argument to prove such a duel, one would be mistaken. There is no argument to be found there. Yet before one faults Peikoff for what seems to be quite an oversight, one should re-read the opening paragraph of the Epilogue.

It's now official, former theist, child-molester, slave-master, second grade teacher and testicle owner, Ms. Garrison has converted to the worship of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, and/or atheism, in order to get laid. For his religious faith, Stan is seated in the corner with a dunce cap reading "I have faith." Meanwhile, Eric Cartman is transported 500 years into the future, where he finds that all religious belief has been eradicated by the Unified Atheist League. Unfortunately for Cartman, there is a war in progress in the future, between these forces of reason and...the hated United Atheist Alliance...

I've found a really amazing add-on for Firefox...it's called Dai.sy and what it basically amounts to is a chat program for everyone who's currently visiting a specific site. It's live feed, and runs a lot more smoothly than our own rather clunky chatbox. I'd advise all the Firefox users (and you should ALL be Firefox users) to give it a look; maybe we can make the site's Dai.sy chatroom a permanent part of the SOLO experience.

Firefox 2 has just been released.
Best enhancement is the new spell-check feature. Whenever you add text to an input area such as a SOLO comment box, Firefox will check spelling as you type, underlining any suspicious words. You can right-click on a suspect to get some alternatives or to add it to your local dictionary.

Love, and emotion for that matter (in a healthy brain) is our response to our highest values. Love is the emotional price you pay for *valuing* something and seeing it expressed in another human being.

At the most fundamental level, environmentalism and the Green movement that represents it are hostile to business. The ethics of environmentalism and the Greens is one of human deprivation and individual self-sacrifice. Business in contrast rests on a foundation of the pursuit of happiness and the profit motive.

According to the NZ Herald:
Health officials target workplace vending machines
Workplace food-vending machines are the next target in the battle against obesity.
Health officials want to restrict their contents, and say they could use health and safety legislation as a way to improve what people eat.
A university nutritionist has welcomed the idea, but says it would be impossible to enforce.
