Oh Noes! Anarkeh

Tomorrow I’m off (meaning I turn west instead of east off of Donahue) to the Austrian Scholars Conference, where I’ll be giving a talk on American Revolution and the Spectre of Anarchy: The Hamilton-Seabury and Price-Lind Debates.

John Lind's VISAGE, like that of an interdimensional SQUID, is too DISTURBING to display here

    Woo-hoo! A PDF instead of a .doc file 🙂

    On page 19: absurdly, as Price supposes

    I think you mean absurdly, as Lind supposes

      Yup. Also, when I refer to tights at one point, I mean rights.

        Freud would have a field day with that one… 🙂

    Hi Roderick.

    Off-topic: I was just browsing the yahoo archives of the ALL group: in one of your posts you describe Wittgenstein’s “Parable of the trees” as a brilliant defense of private property. I’m not familiar with his work and haven’t had any success finding this parable with Google. Can you show me the way?

      You might be thinking of the “Parable of the Bees”.

      Or you might be thinking of Rush’s song about trees.

      Now there’s no more Oak oppression
      For they passed a noble law
      And the trees are all made equal
      By hatchet, axe, and saw.

      Both illustrate the problem of socialism from different angles.

      I quote the Wittgenstein parable here.

    I believe that Nozick uses the trees example in ASU.

    • Roderick March 13, 2009 at 1:13 am #

      I don’t recall Nozick using it, but I used it in a piece about Nozick.
