Did you reset your clocks? Planned topics for today’s show: Japan one year after the quake and tsunami that killed thousands. Should Japan reduce its reliance on nuclear power? Why you should not rely on the Wall Street Journal for news on the Israeli-“Palestinian” conflict; Justice Department threatens to sue Apple and book publishers on e-books, and more.

In honor of Daylight Savings, shall we review the classic philosophical canard : “Is a broken clock right twice a day ?”

Just heard the show.
Regarding this latest massacre in Iraq, Bosch said something sarcastically that I think is absolutely true; that the Emo look is a threat to the culture- it absolutely IS a threat and a big one. These youngsters were expressing their individuality and appreciation of western culture (we can’t know exactly what was going on in their heads but taking this on face value, that they were killed for looking “western” or “American”) and they were murdered (eliminated) for it.
If I may make an emotionalist-romantic comment: this was another act of war. As far as I’m concerned these kids were defenders of western values (individual rights), and this was not only a threat to, but a direct attack on Islamic culture, which has NO RIGHT to “defend” itself (apologies for even using “defend” and “Islam” in the same sentence). They were soldiers for the west; for individualism, for freedom of expression and were assassinated. If we refuse to do anything about the savages in power now, it’s up to kids like these and all the power to them (to fight, not to be martyrs). If I believed in God I’d pray for these kids. Certainly the void is a better place to “be”.
I recently came across Dr. David Deutsch of Oxford U while looking for information on recent advances into quantum computing. Wikipedia describes him as a libertarian and an atheist, but this letter that he wrote just after 9-11 shows that he is no libertarian. “This will require, first of all, war.” was part of his response in his letter. It reminded me of Leonard Peikoff’s 9-11 essay. The link is provided below.
The next link is a video of a speech he gave at TED in July 2005
Environmentalists may not like it.
All the best.
Dear Dr. Peikoff $,
Thank you for the friendly reminder of setting our clocks ahead one hour. More importantly, I wish to express my gratitude to you and Mr. Fawstin for defending liberty and romantic beauty. When my budget permits I certainly hope to investigate Mr. Fawstin’s works as a source of gifts. I certainly would enjoy his graphic novels for my son and the smiley face Ayn Rand shirt for my married, Thomistic daughter.
Finally, I have gotten through the first chapter of Ms. Kira Peikoff’s novel and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Again, thank you both.– EABII. $
