ANOTHER SUNDAY’S RECOMMENDED READING
Cool new blog of the day, P A Martin Börjesson at Futuramblog - “Where are the horizontal thinkers going? To the quality departments!!” and “Maslow turned upside down?” ( Hat tip Critt) Futureamblog badly needs a “home” or “main” icon )
Historian Niall Ferguson in the Washington Post -”The New Demagogues“. Cicero as a demagogue ? I suppose his reaction to the Cataline conspiracy qualifies but if so, then John Adams too was a demagogue during the quasi-war with France. That’s stretching the term too far.
Dr. Richard Florida at The Creativity Exchange - “Class analysis gets classy“. Don’t get too entranced or put off by the strong legacy of academic Marxism here ( it is an endemic analytical perspective for Phd’s in the social sciences of a certain age cohort, regardless of their political views) and just look toward the important implications in the post.
That’s it !
Working on a post of substantial size, which may or not get posted today depending on my energy level and real world chores. Either way, more to come.
