Thoughts, essays, and writings on Liberty. Written by the heirs of Patrick Henry.

“Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire. The former are idealists acting from highest motives for the greatest good of the greatest number. The latter are surely curmudgeons, suspicious and lacking in altruism. But they are more comfortable neighbors than the other sort.”     Robert A. Heinlein

Monday Open Thread — Resolutions Edition

by Brad Warbiany

Note that I didn’t say “revolutions” edition, although if your resolution is to start a revolution, that’s fine too.

My goals are pretty vanilla; get into better shape and cut down on debt, and hopefully (if the market is properly battered) to buy a house.

How about you folks? What do you have planned for 2008?

  1. Brad,

    “My goals are pretty vanilla; get into better shape and cut down on debt, and hopefully (if the market is properly battered) to buy a house.”

    Even vanilla goals will be difficult to achieve if you don’t employ effective methods. How do you expect me to help you buy a house if you don’t supply a prominent donation button? As a renter, I am already tax subsidizing your potential mortgage payments. If you don’t care enough to beg, that will have to do.

    HNY, Don

  4. Easy:
    Be a good first-time father, read more (at least before the kid comes), blog the same amount (ditto), and find a new job.

  5. I like David Wilson’s resolutions.. I need to read more Rothbard, Mises and then Atlas Shrugged.

    I also aspire to increase my carbon footprint to that of a mega eco-star, like Al Gore or Cate Blanchett.
