sounds better than the mathematics lectures I received - the lecturer with his back turned to the audience, mumbling as he scrawled out textbook proof after textbook proof on blackboard after blackhoard, his audience in turn trying not to nod off as each copied black board after black board....

Very interesting. I'm sympathetic to the claim that London black cabs represent an anti-competitive cartel. But I'm not sure if this is the right way to oppose it. http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2012/apr/19/tory-donor-addison-lee-bus-lanes

"Early-morning executions in Pamplona attracted large crowds, and with them sellers of hot chocolate. Expectant mothers in the maternity ward in Toledo were taken away and shot. The progressive mayor of Uncastillo was humiliated, tortured, and executed; his corpse was dismembered by an ax. A Republican pilot who crash-landed was murdered, his body cut into pieces, the pieces placed in a box, and the box dropped by parachute over Madrid with a threatening note." www.tnr.com/article/books-and-arts/magazine/102134/spanish-holocaust-francisco-franco?page=0,0

The Brothers Grimm selectively edited traditional German folklore to convey messages appropriate to the gender norms of their day. http://www.economist.com/blogs/prospero/2012/04/fairy-tales?fsrc=nlw|newe|4-4-2012|1297789|36295376|

Some interesting ideas about the politics of a prospective post-scarcity society. http://jacobinmag.com/winter-2012/four-futures/

The article was surprisingly easy to understand. We need to get rid of inequality and then deal with scarcity as best as we can.

Thanks for sharing!
