Дикие карты
В книге «Структура научных революций» (книга о великих добродетелях и крупнейших ошибках, но я не собираюсь сейчас вдаваться в них) Томас Кун описывает эксперимент, который, как мне кажется, имеет огромное значение для либертарианцев, особенно для левых либертарианцев: В психологическом эксперименте, значение которого заслуживает того, чтобы о нем знали и непсихологи, Дж. Брунер и Л. Постмен…
Roderick Long on Bullshit Jobs
This month, C4SS Senior Fellow Roderick Long was featured in Reason magazine with a review of David Graeber’s Bullshit Jobs: A Theory. “Bullshit jobs” are defined by Graeber as “so completely pointless, unnecessary, or pernicious that even the employee cannot justify [their] existence.” The book discusses the rise of such jobs in the modern economy, pointing fingers squarely…
Harambe isn’t Your Excuse for Adult Supremacy
On May 28th a tragic incident happened at the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden where a 3 year old boy managed to get into an enclosure with a gorilla named Harambe.

Justice, Not Amnesty, for “Illegal” Immigrants

A anarquia como meio-termo
Meu colega de Centro por uma Sociedade sem Estado Roderick Long certa vez descreveu a anarquia como meio-termo, não como um tipo de fanatismo ou extremismo, mas um ponto “entre obrigar o que deveria ser opcional e proibir o que deveria ser opcional”. O argumento de Long não é só um enfoque diferente que tenta…
Memorial Day Thoughts
J. Edward Carp has already written a fine piece on Memorial Day, but I see no reason why there isn’t room for another. One might expect an anarchist such as myself to simply trash veterans as stooges of the state, but I have a more nuanced perspective to offer. Memorial Day is often used by…
