I have suspended This Weekend (TWE for short) until I can make the improvements I want in the function. The link above will take you to a longer more detailed explanation at Memory, Making, Meaning. Please feel free to comment there. The existing pages will remain intact for now, but as they age I may redirect their traffic to that blog entry.

From Bob Wallace: “Ever since I was 12 years old I have felt like I belonged to a different species. I’ve always felt human... well, mostly...but with maybe, oh, I don’t know -- some sort of unusual DNA, perhaps like in The Island of Dr. Moreau. That would explain things.”

Movie Review of Children of Men (2006) by Tom Ender. Anti-state dystopian scifi action/adventure stars Clive Owen, Claire-Hope Ashitey, Michael Caine, Julianne Moore, Chiwetel Ejiofor; directed by Alfonso Cuarón. “Although this film surely belongs in the dystopian category, in addition to the suggestion that the near future may contain social horrors it carries other more optimistic messages as well. The movie’s performances far exceeded my expectations, as did the story itself. The work ranks as an artistic achievement which reveals both some of the best and worst aspects of the human species.”

A new Essay by Cat Farmer on the spectrum of social options. “[I]f there’s a key to ‘changing the world,’ I think people generally have the idea backward. Unfortunately, it seems most would rely on Control and Coercion — try as they will to hide that fact behind smiley faces and snappy slogans. They’d rely on government coercion (legislation and enforcement) to propagate their ideas.... Gandhi had a brighter idea: he said, ‘Be the change you want to see in the world.’”

Part 3 concludes Ban the Smoking Gun of Government from Schools by Retta Fontana: “I had spent the last month making drawings of and working out design issues for the projects I intended to create this semester, as independent art students do. If I had to, I knew that I would drop the class if he didn’t let me be. He didn’t seem open to discussion. As I said, a little authority is a heady thing.”

An essay by Lila Rajiva. “Unfair trade is yet another of the shiny slogans that festoon the spectacle of globalization like tinsel on a pole dancer. How can different regulations and practices in different countries constitute unfairness? Isn’t it the essence of trade that different countries have different things to offer — whether cheaper labor, or better technology, or more bountiful natural resources, or more welcoming business environments?”

Another new essay from Sunni Maravillosa on ‘sustainability’, freedom and some implications. “Each participant will become part of the freedom systems they use. However, understanding that inevitable result and advocating the establishment and perpetuation of a system are very different things. I’m resigned to the former; I don’t foresee seriously engaging in the latter. ... It presupposes that we, today, know what will be best for those living in the future. We don’t.”
An Essay by Tom Ender on some aspects of property and its ownership - “[F]ictional characters do not have rights. If you have imaginary friends, they do not have rights. Only a real person can have rights. This applies to property rights, along with all other individual rights. ... In today’s world are there any fictional or imaginary entities which are thought by many people to have rights?”
