  • It is amazing to me.  When talking to socialists or fundamentalists, I expect to hear certainty.  I expect such people to affirm that they believe they have absolute omniscient knowledge of the truth.  On a discussion site for anarchists, I am surprised to hear that same kind of certainty.  How many are there here that look for exact formulations, orthodox anarchism (how is that possible), or PC anarchism?  How many are there who survey this web site looking for “errors”, who know everything there is to know and who want to make sure everyone else knows it?

  • I wanted to bring to this community’s attention the recent documentary “Can We Take a Joke?”, directed by Ted Balaker, one of the founders of Reason TV.  Through the lens of stand-up comedy, it explores how outrage culture and political correctness are eroding the space for free and outrageous expression. I was honored to compose the score for this documentary along with my writing partner Ryan Rapsys.  (please check out our new website The film premiered at Doc NYC in November and I’m sure it will be available for viewing in the near future. I’ll make sure to post when it becomes available for public consumption.

  • Dear tech-savvy friends, It is time for me to get a new laptop for my work life. I would love your input. I have had a Macbook and a Macbook Pro. They were both great. Should I just get yet another Apple product? The programs I use for my publishing work are not very demanding (nothing tougher than MS Word). I do need to be able to do solid videoconferencing. I do not need video games. I like long battery life so that I can work from wherever I like. I like reliability, but now that I can easily back things up in the cloud, I am less obsessed with avoiding crashes. I like relatively large screen size. I can shell out for another Apple product, but I wonder if I can get what I need from something more modest, like a Chromebook. Your expert advice would be much appreciated.

  • There seems to be some increase within certain libertarian circles towards political correctness.  Virtually everything (but not every single thing) that is politically correct in any culture is flat wrong everywhere.
