Things I’ve flagged as worth linking to since the last time I wrote a blog post linking to stuff:
- South Bend Seven on how narrative bias makes all fiction left-wing.
- Ferris Bueller’s Day Off as a 2000s indie film, via threedonia:
- Lessons from Libya for Dictators in Distress
- Via Dr. Sanity, an honest Berkeley scientist rips the Climategate ‘scientists’ a new one:
- Foseti on budgets and the kabuki fiction of ‘debate’.
- Via Econlog, the lottery as the ultimate example of inequality that ‘progressives’ should oppose but don’t.
- The Love Potion of Socialized Medicine.
- DeLong and Krugman Don’t Get It by Falkenstein.
- The Failure of American Power by Whiskey.
- Wil Wheaton on a Stand By Me reunion, and River Phoenix.
- mkfreeberg identifies a truly irritatingly offensive phrase.
- Borepatch on our technocratic mandarins.
- Via Half Sigma, a feedback loop: the poor want to live in cities, which makes them more poor-friendly, which makes more poor people want to live in them, which makes them poor.
- Dafydd ab Hugh asks what happens if Qaddafi wins?
- Barack Obama, sham intellectual. What, President Obama actually seems smart to you? Oh my. How embarrassing for you.
- Bryan Caplan asks would you give up your health insurance for the cash equivalent? In other words, do you want to actually get your full salary in the form of money? Money can be spent on a variety of goods and services. Why is this even a hard question?
- “…redistributionists (liberals) are more racist, angrier, less altruistic, and less happy than anti-redistributrionists”.
- dissention says that real-life friends are useless.
