Re: Worldwise: German Sentiment (Karl Smith & Arash Molavi Vassei)

Not to say there wouldn't be all kinds of problems, but we had that situation here in the U.S. back in the late 1970's. It was unpleasant ("stagflation") but we lived through it and came out the...

Re: Worldwise: German Sentiment (Karl Smith & Arash Molavi Vassei)

Tell my why a controlled, relatively modest rate of inflation, of say 6 or 7 percent a year for 6 or 7 years, would not "solve" the problems of European indebtedness? (Or of U.S. and Chinese...

Re: Values Added: The Whirligig of Time (Glenn Loury & Walter Russell Mead)

Having listened to it now, it was every bit as good as I predicted. One thing you gotta admit about Walter Russell Mead: he makes interesting observation you've heard no one else make before. ...

Great to see Walter Russell Mead on Blogginheads. Haven't listened yet, but with Glen Loury on the other side it's bound to be good.

Re: Values Added: Occupy, Inc. (David Roberts & Julian Sanchez)

I just happened to be at Searchlight on a lark. What struck me was the presence of two huge, super-modern media buses with fancy custom Tea Party paint jobs, alongside the usual buses of the...

Occupy Wall Street

I don't get Ann's point that OWS has to have an end. I don't see that it has to be continuous either. What's wrong with spontaneous repetition, not going away but gradually building? Change...

The Role of the Orthodox Rabbis

As far back as Gush Emunim it has been clear that so-called "Orthodox" interpretations of Jewish law have been fundamental in justifying these kinds of outrages in connection with the occupied...

Will Oakland anarchists sink the entire Occupy movement?

Not if OWS'ers wear white head bands or some other visible insignia to signify their commitment to the principles of non-violent civil disobedience.

Vandals wearing these insignia should be...

Re: The Week in Blog: Defense Against the Political Dark Arts (Bill Scher & Matt Lewis)

OWS - separating out the vandals

OWS'ers need a conspicuous visible token of their commitment to non-violent civil disobedience. Headbands might work. Window breakers and rock throwers with headbands would be subject to citizen...

Is Pakistan a state?
