Linking for Thinking

Black Rednecks and White Liberals by Thomas Sowell is an outstanding read, and now you can also enjoy Amanda Green’s chapter by chapter review. Bookmark it.

No, socialism is not cool, and yes, it has been tied. It’s deadly.
China is amending its Constitution to make Ji Xinping dictator for life.

Conservatives and cultural power. Part 2. I nearly stopped reading when David Brooks was called a conservative. He just plays one for money, but not with any sincerity or accuracy.

If you don’t already know about Appendix N, you should. This will make more sense if you do. I’d put it on the same shelf as books by John Taylor Gatto and Samuel Blumenfeld.

    Why is Appendix N important? I’m not sure what the deal is. Have you blogged about it before? I’m intrigued by the blog post linked but still don’t understand. I’m also so not good at reading books on the Kindle but I can’t afford a “real” copy 😛

      I think appendix N is something worth reading to certain populations for two reasons- if you like old school sci fi and fantasy it’s a terrific booklist.
      If you like gaming, esp RPG, it’s a fun booklist.

      Culturally, it’s important for this reason- It’s a look at how the reading culture has changed (and not for the better IMO, but I’m a get off my lawn generation). Using SF/F as the sampler, it’s kind of a microscopic view of a specific area with broader implications. If you hate SF/F, though, you won’t like it.

      This explains it:
