@publius I will have to admit that much of my understanding of 18th and 19th century economics is filtered through Heilbronner and his WORLDLY PHILOSOPHERS. I have, read some Smith, some Ricardo, some Mill, some Marx, and good bit of Veblen (mainly for insights into consumerism).

“Mill regarded the material inequality generated by capitalism as one of the primary reasons for the increasing lack of freedom — and precisely because Mill is a liberal thinker, he demonstrates himself open to forms of social organisation other than capitalism.”

Server has suddenly started sending html files as a download instead of displaying them.

To top it off, file is actually a .php file that is suppose to be parsed as php but I had some handler specified in the configuration to do that and now I don’t quite recall how that was done. Bottom line is that now it is both not displaying it as html nor is it parsing it as php. 🤷


If you think Biden is a "socialist," you can I say this politely? ...incorrect.

Went to DPS office on 25th. Received license in mail today. Not bad. Not bad at all.
