    is as if your heart was an 
    open sore. Life in situ, before
    corrupted by education. It dug
    itself out of everydaddy life…

    How’s your life, your freedom?
    Still looking for it, waiting for it,
    planning for it, preoccupied
    with it? 

    Can you project how much time
    in your life you will remain a slave?
    Do you think you really have a ... more
  • Ken Wedding's CompGov Blog: Nation, state, country

    This op-ed essay about the vote for Scottish independence is worth the time it takes to sort out the analysis (that includes references to Thomas Hobbes).
