Nice story from Robert Samuelson on why we keep failing to get a simplified tax code. 
Both political parties talk a good game.

Politics: Amateurs 
The lie of "Do What You Love" culture. 
----------------
From the article, "By keeping us focused on ourselves and our individual happiness, DWYL distracts us from the working conditions of others while validating our own choices and relieving us from obligations to all who labor, whether or not they love it. It is the secret handshake of the privileged and a worldview that disguises its elitism as noble self-betterment. According to this way of thinking, labor is not something one does for compensation, but an act of self-love. If profit doesn’t happen to follow, it is because the worker’s passion and determination were insufficient. Its real achievement is making workers believe their labor serves the self and not the marketplace."
....
"Do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life! Before succumbing to the intoxicating warmth of that promise, it’s critical to ask, “Who, exactly, benefits from making work feel like non-work?” “Why should workers feel as if they aren’t working when they are?” Historian Mario Liverani reminds us that “ideology has the function of presenting exploitation in a favorable light to the exploited, as advantageous to the disadvantaged.”

In masking the very exploitative mechanisms of labor that it fuels, DWYL is, in fact, the most perfect ideological tool of capitalism. It shunts aside the labor of others and disguises our own labor to ourselves. It hides the fact that if we acknowledged all of our work as work, we could set appropriate limits for it, demanding fair compensation and humane schedules that allow for family and leisure time."
You've got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do.

Fun set of videos for young and old.
 
Six fantastic two-minute animations on various aspects of critical thinking. Aimed at kids but also designed to resonate with "grown-ups".

This is a real problem that we don't hear too much about.

For any runners out there, I've been loving these shoes lately. They're super light and minimal enough to encourage a nice mid to forefoot strike.

A brilliant man with a brilliant plan. His supporters included Leo Tolstoy, Albert Einstein, Winston Churchill, Bernard Shaw and John Dewey. Henry George's ideas on economics are still relevant today. Using them could help us create a just and sustainable society where efficient growth would be the norm.
