    I found this marvelous clip of Carl Sagan explaining science, set to music. Enjoy!

    I was quite surprised to see this debate on PBS of all places. Not only is it impressive for being aired on PBS, but the content of the show is overall rather good. Moral principles against government are explained, and the word anarchy is used in a non-derogatory manner.

    If the future is to be post-political, then it makes sense to work to reduce the size and scope of politics and government in society.

    We now have a little bit of help on the way. 200 economists have signed up to oppose the instantiation of the Keynesian broken windows fallacy, also known as Obama's bailout package:



    Included in the list of 200 economists is Nobel Prize Laureate James Buchanan (the economist, not the president). Mr. Buchanan won the Nobel Prize for Economics in 1986 for his work on public choice theory, which basically exposed how political leaders' self-interest gets the better of them and negatively affects their policy decisions, to the detriment of us all. Oh, how fitting.

    I doubt Obama will ever see or hear of this advertisement. He is probably too busy to be reading the ads in The New York Times. But the mere fact that these dissenters are pushing their message (and pushing it quite well) is a very good sign. This is but a small symbol of the slowly building rise toward post-politics in society. Progress-minded people like us should recognize events like these and embrace them wholeheartedly.

    From Telegraph.co.uk:

    Sir Richard Branson unveiled the final design of the spaceship he hopes will take fare-paying passengers into space.

    Sir Richard, whose Virgin Galactic is one of several commercial enterprises competing in the nascent space tourism market, said SpaceShipTwo will start test flights later this year.

    Speaking at a launch at the American Museum of Natural History in Manhattan, he said: "Two thousand eight is going to be the year of the spaceship. We're excited about this, and everything it will do."

    He described the designs of both the mothership and the new spaceship as "absolutely beautiful" and beyond anything he had expected for commercial space flight when his company registered the Virgin Galactic name in 1999.

    ...

    He added: "I think it's very important that we make a genuine commercial success of this project. If we do, I believe we'll unlock a wall of private sector money into both space launch systems and space technology."


    I absolutely love it! The private sector is doing what the government can't do: build affordable, reliable space transportation vehicles for the everyman. When government sends something into space, it costs us a billion dollars. When the private sector does it, we make a billion dollars.

    Don't take this the wrong way, but I hope that Sir Richard Branson and Burt Rutan make NASA obsolete, and soon. Space is a trasure trove, not a money pit. Let's utilize it properly.
