Emily Bazelon, Oct. 15, 9:35 PM: It’s good to charge two male teenagers for drunken sex. What parents?
Remember: Males are always to blame, females are never to blame.

    Never heard of this Hembling person though.

    He’s known on AVFM as John The Other or JTO.

  • Leap of a Beta

    “Leap on voting laws. Seems like he might start leaning towards monarchy soon.”

    Maybe. I’m not against it, as a government. I remain unconvinced that it would work in modern politics/nations; but part of that hesitation is that there hasn’t been a successful monarchy for some time. That situation and inability of a modern monarch could also be a byproduct of our current unhealthy society; I haven’t spent enough time with the concept, honestly.

    There’s more to that post/series coming. I just got caught up with work and was starting to fall into some fallacies in my thinking when I was writing it out. I hope to come back to it next Monday.

    Kudos to posting Amos’s work. His longer writings are brilliant and shine a bright light on what we all know already. It helps that its a pleasure to read.

  • sunshinemary

    Thanks for linking, FN!

    I’m heading over to read the Moldbug post forthwith.

    That debt graph is very upsetting.

  • Free Northerner

    @ B74: Still don’t recognize it; but I don’t pay too much attention to aVfM.

    @ Leap: Look forward to the rest.

    @ HP: A&G have been putting out a lot of good stuff recently.

    A SSM: I’m not sure how much Moldbug you’ve read, but if you haven’t read much, Moldbug is a treat.
