A little about me...
To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded. — Ralph Waldo Emerson

This one, without a doubt, is the most interesting piece I read this month:

What's it about, you ask? Meritocracy. Instead of explaining the specifics, let me offer this quote:

"Our new multiracial, gender-neutral meritocracy has figured out a way to make itself hereditary."

Yes, it is an article in opposition to meritocracy. There are not nearly enough of those, and this one is particularly interesting, I say.

AlterNet has an interesting piece on the FBI's continuous efforts to convince Moslems to commit domestic acts of terrorism against Jews.

Between this, parallel construction and asset forfeiture, US law enforcement looks like a parody version. A parody I prefer to watch from a distance...

Interesting concept: the Unnecessariat

"Here’s the thing: from where I live, the world has drifted away. We aren’t precarious, we’re unnecessary. The money has gone to the top. The wages have gone to the top. The recovery has gone to the top. And what’s worst of all, everybody who matters seems basically pretty okay with that. The new bright sparks, cheerfully referred to as “Young Gods” believe themselves to be the honest winners in a new invent-or-die economy, and are busily planning to escape into space or acquire superpowers, and instead of worrying about this, the talking heads on TV tell you its all a good thing- don’t worry, the recession’s over and everything’s better now, and technology is TOTES AMAZEBALLS!"
