Modern times find themselves with an immense system of institutions, established facts, accredited dogmas, customs, rules, which have come to them from times not modern. In this system their life has to be carried forward; yet they have a sense that this system is not of their own creation, that it by no means corresponds exactly with the wants of their actual life, that, for them, it is customary, not rational. The awakening of this sense is the awakening of the modern spirit.

From there I found an amazing critic who writing about Jonathan Foer who as a miracle of nature can withstand any amount of criticism. Comparing him to Phillip Roth is somewhat of joke since he is so obviously superior in so many literary ways anyone who is smart enough to know the parts of speech cannot help but be jealous that they haven’t the energy to be the kind of virtuouso they have the temerity to criticize for doing what they wish they had
April Fools were people who did not accept that the celebration of a new year had been moved to the seventh day of Christmas, this seemed a big mistake to April Fools and it soon became apparent who the real fools were as they were ridiculed for their inflexibility and their intuitive sense of beginning that unfolds of spring was nothing compared to the biological clock of Life, even the viruses are more active in March. As the official Papal bull of the time, it caught on and the change was forgotten … much like the confiscation of our personhood
on the first day of the year the editorial board at the New York Times has come down firmly on the side of edwardSNOWDEN and has chosen to usher in the New Year with this message to the governor, we don’t like our sources drying up because we are being watched …
Truth is: The fourth estate guarantees the first amendment and it is first because it is the highest priority … open the lines of communication … and the government can do whatever it wants to do … the media cannot publish what it cannot discover

The Transparency Movement has been around for quite awhile now. And it is a worthy cause that has pretty much had all the wind taken out of its sails … i need to invent tired cliches for my uses … how can i say it better

So on the first of the month, we see what is happening with the paper of record in America and these editors are taking a stand and saying, this young man is not a criminal he is a hero. And everyone agrees with them. Even the security specialists do not want to lose their Love of Liberty, or lose their sense of privacy. Why is it a one way operation? The question is: If you get to see what we are up to, then we get to see what you are up to.
how do we determine the highest priority, how can we be objective enough to consider the possible externalities and weigh all the outcomes and choose the value maximizing alternative out of a score of options available to us to create a system that is not only logical but is also efficient
the discussion cannot be open if there are consequences for questioning authority, when the 500 found the sea it was because they determined to examine their options together and democratically take the next step based on the referendum of the soldiers … this method was put forth by Xenophon and so he was elected their
