This is what I do when I’m not at work.

Finally… Something Worth Reading

Well, I haven’t passed along any links recently. Not my fault. There hasn’t been much worth passing along. People the world over are pissing themselves over the not-so-funny “Emo Farm” video (if you want a link, you can go find it elsewhere) and a bunch of other garbage that isn’t funny. And most of the “scholarly” stuff I’ve been told to read looks like a mish-mash of yesterday’s intellectualism and tomorrow’s prescription for failure — resulting in an unreadable mess. There have been blog entries by highly educated people that, upon successive re-reads, I still cannot understand WTF they are trying to say. So guess what? I stopped reading them.

Regardless, a tiny sliver of hope for humanity was revealed today when Jason sent along a link to The Ludwig von Mises Institute. The link he sent was a funny one. Or maybe it was meant to be ironic. Or just downright depressing considering the context of US Government in 2005. Anyway, it reminded me of a great organization that actually publishes works worth reading. I think the Mises Economics Blog is where I’ll be spending my valuable reading minutes for the foreseeable future.

Okay, one more link for good measure. JoinTogether.org  Let’s hope they can make a difference before their website is outlawed.
