Game Theory?

Ed Thompson's picture
Submitted by Ed Thompson on Wed, 2016-02-10 02:39

Economic, agent-based, game theory research is something which could be ignored by Objectivists based on a first-principle analysis, but that may also be a reactionary mistake.

Twelve Aphorisms for Our Age—Variations on a Theme of Edmund Burke

Twelve Aphorisms for Our Age—Variations on a Theme of Edmund Burke

"The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing."

This adage is usually attributed to Edmund Burke, though its origin is disputed. Whoever said it, it is especially apposite in our politically correct age when one is not permitted even to call anything "evil," much less take action against it. Muslims practise and propagate their barbarous superstition, academia and the media their pomo-Marxism, moronnials their aggressive airheadedness, etc., with an impunity lethal to civilisation, because too many of those who know better say nothing. With current events in mind, I have produced twelve variations of my own on Burke's theme.

 I'm delighted to report that UK-based Sepia Records will soon be releasing yet another Mario Lanza CD compilation: Never Till Now, a collection of some of the man's finest recordings in English. Armando Cesari (author of Mario Lanza: An American Tragedy), Vincent Di Placido, Lee Ann Cafferata and I were the compilers, and the material that we've chosen spans most of Lanza's commercial recording career.
