In a remarkably inspiring book (A History of Democracy) Prof. Dunn (Cambridge) has called attention to two problems in democracy: it seems that one "equality" is that all ideas and arguments are equally doubtful and that equality of voting needs to be supplemented by regular referenda.

A few thoughts on the matter of deficits: Do they matter or what?

21-11-2012 22:27

Everyone knows that almost all Western nations have been running trade deficits for decades know, and that it was once -famously- said that "deficits don't matter". This may sound strange, but I kind of agree:

Reciprocal Contamination and Reciprocal Assassination

18-11-2012 16:54

This seems to be the conflagration of the rudiments of a much bigger storm that, for some reason or another, did not break out. What has so far prevented this radioactive war is the doctrine of reciprocal contamination which in the face of previously unknown cyber attacks tacitly installed itself on the core of the classical theocracies. The capacity to reciprocate contamination released by an attack on enemy territory can deter such attack no matter how the contamination is being achieved.
