Update

I'm just wondering what Bob thinks of the commentariat these days. We've run the experiment for several months now, maybe it's time for a new "special" diavlog with Jim or someone else to try and...

Re: What's competition?

Never heard of that movement. Practice fails if it's practiced. Politicians have other agendas, we know that. I'm sure the current administration has let down some of your ideals as well.



Yes...

Re: What's competition?

Thatcher said she was taking her ideas from Hayek, but Hayek never endorsed her policy decisions, nor was he ever her advisor.

This aside, Hayek is describing what is, he's making a positive...

What's competition?

Matt Lewis (http://bloggingheads.tv/videos/9042?in=42:01&out=42:10) and Robert Costa (http://bloggingheads.tv/videos/9042?in=43:53&out=44:01) don't know what the free-market is.

Free-market...

Re: holy cannoli

When "the facts" are subject of debate ignorance might be bliss. Better still would be 'informed skepticism'.

I did not realize at first that this was a discussion about global warming, but even...

Re: holy cannoli

The flip-side is hubris, immodesty, arrogance, authoritarianism, elitism etc.....

Once again there are trade-offs.

Re: TWIB=InsideGOP

They're the party in power. It's not like there's no disagreements. They might be kept hush right now, but they'll surely surface once they're out of power again. I'm not so much interested in...

Re: TWIB=InsideGOP

Yes, whatever "the two have", "that thing they do", is not unpleasant, only borderline boring though (at least to me). Yes they're crossing the ideological divide and do engage in friendly banter,...

TWIB=InsideGOP

Is it just me? What The Week in Blogs has really been about most of the time is Matt explaining or excusing inside baseball GOP politicking to Bill. No? When was the last time we heard Matt question...

Re: An Important Note to Our Valued Commenters from Bob

So why not let us run topic discussions here for each new diavlog without worrying about the bridge to the front page?

Re: An Important Note to Our Valued Commenters from Bob

I had gotten the impression that there would be less diavlogs and yes a new comment section and a redesign, but I didn't expect the forum to be shut down. I'm ok with Disqus for the main page and the...

Re: An Important Note to Our Valued Commenters from Bob

If I had known I wouldn't have donated money a few weeks ago. There should be a law, a regulation, against soliciting money donations right before you're about to close shop down.

In some law systems there's something called "usucaption"

Re: The Others

I wonder about the new legal forms that the Internet era might bring. For instance, say you build a public forum, free-access and all that, at what point do the participants acquire a share of the...

It seems the "community" is already fractured, the way it often does on tv shows like "Lost" or some such thing. Some people will follow the new leader JimM to the island of Disqus, and others, a...

Re: An Important Note to Our Valued Commenters from Bob

Why are you so dismissive of the people who will not transition to disqus?

If vBulletin was free, the way say Wordpress blogs are, I could see some of us setting up a blog about bhtv where we...

Re: @Disqus

Maybe we can just create a thread ourselves over here for each diavlog. I'm sure a new community of commenters will form over on Disqus, but for us few interested old-timers we can do-it-ourselves...

Re: An Important Note to Our Valued Commenters from Bob

After checking out Disqus I'm sorry to say but I won't be joining you on the new forum. It's been fun, and I thank everyone who's ever interacted with me.

So long everyone.

Re: An Important Note to Our Valued Commenters from Bob

I always thought that vBulletin was genius and truly unique in the blogosphere. It's a pity if it will simply be tossed out.

PS: My kids will also miss the little TVs with legs.

Re: LOL

Yes, I think you're right. Hayek had a preference for generic laws that did not go into details and applied to everyone equally. But libertarians are hardly alone in preferring equality in front of...
