Not Dead, Merely Resting

September 8th, 2009 · 6 Comments

And not even resting that much, but as I noted earlier, expect to see a good deal more of my blogging over at Cato@Liberty these days. Here’s a long one on the recent call for more regulation of behavioral ads—which, believe it or not, I only mostly disagree with.

    C@L has already been made more interesting by your presence.

    On a tangentially related note, how did philosophy acquire such a popular reputation as being an impractical, head-in-the-sky discipline? I’d say it’s by far the most useful and intellectually rigorous major among the humanities. (To provide a point of reference, I majored in physics.) Philosophy majors are hugely overrepresented among the political commentators who are worth reading.

    I just wish C@L would allow some dadgum comments.

    Are you going to keep linking to your C@L posts here? Or do we need to subscribe to C@L if we want to keep reading you?

    Hey Sameer-
    I expect I’ll occasionally cross-link C@L stuff, especially if they’re longer essays as opposed to quick posts, but I doubt I’ll do it for all of them. So it wouldn’t hurt to subscribe there. Though I don’t plan to wholly abandon this blog; plenty of stuff I write wouldn’t really be appropriate there.

    Your post raises the more abstract issue of legislative settoing of default rukes. I’ve noticed that many libertarians don’t understand that they can’t just employ their usual arguments to rules parties can contract out of. You obviously do. Any prospect of an essay on sticky defaults and the sophisticated progressives who love them?

    Quite possibly. I’m much friendlier than many of my fellow travelers to this sort of default-setting, and I’m contemplating co-authoring an essay with a friend on libertarian non-ideal theory, which will probably at least dip into the issue.
