It’s title: To New Horizons. The logic is sunny and simple, but it has proven (thus far) to be pretty much dead on.
______ And here’s his exciting website.
We live in interesting times: the end of the “dumb society.” A great short documentary on our collective (and hopeful) future:
When I read the following portion of an account in the New York Times, by Ian McEwan, of Christopher Hitchens’s last days, I find myself in jaw-dropping awe: [T]his was a man in constant pain. Denied drinking or eating, he sucked on … Continue reading
The following film, as a single tracking shot, put me in mind of Russian Ark. It was filmed on May 22nd in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Roger Ebert calls it “The greatest music video ever made.” I wouldn’t go anywhere near that far. Has … Continue reading
If you want to be hopeful about the human future (including America’s), think about this: free minds and strong exchange economies are positively correlated. It’s not that there is a one-to-one relationship between them, but wherever you have free minds the odds are good, … Continue reading

The liberated body and free-flowing consciousness. The hope of the world: When I watch this I think of John Keats’s famous lines from “Ode on a Grecian Urn”: Beauty is truth, truth beauty,—that is all Ye know on earth, and all … Continue reading
And with heartbreaking power:
If you want it. A nice holiday song if you’re worried (as I am) about 2010 and the prospects for war between Iran and Israel:
From my vantage, people who have had near death experiences have a certain “street cred” when they claim that death is nothing to be frightened of. We believe human testimony in many other matters, and unless we are philosophically committed … Continue reading
Pinch me. Bill O’Reilly said something nice about Barack Obama! Three ghosts must have visited him last night, but credit where credit’s due: What he has achieved in his 48 years is simply astounding. Consider the odds. The United States … Continue reading
Are you an atheist, and are you evangelical about it? In other words, do you want other people to become atheists too? I’m an agnostic myself, but I’m not sure whether I can really recommend it. It seems like a … Continue reading
