    There is no path. Beyond the scope of light - beyond the reach of dark - what could possibly await us?
    And yet we seek it insatiably. Such is our fate.

    I ended up categorizing my employees based off the four main characters. I also decided who I am, which would be a mix of Hem and Haw. Now it's just figuring out how to get the Hem's trucking along, or at least after a bit of prodding become a Haw. Or perhaps a balance of all four. I'm not sure. A balance would probably be best.

    Is it any good?
    But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander.
    1 Peter 3:15-16

    It really is. I thoroughly enjoy reading Dr. Pauls views and positions on a wide variety of subjects. He has a real clear way of expressing those views and explaining why those are the true Conservative principals that we should be following.

    I have always had the impression from Dr. Paul that, if nothing else, the guy really believes that he says and does not merely hold positions and opinions for political expedience sake. (contrary to nearly every other politician from both sides) That sort of conviction and honesty is my favorite quality of the man.

    I am currently reading Jean-Jacques Rousseau's A Discourse on Inequality. I have to say that it is a very fascinating book.

    Rousseau does not attempt to convince of that the inequalities among men are harmful for the whole of society, though he does believe that they are. Instead he spend most of the book exploring the hypothetical social evolution of man out of the state of nature to our present state and he does a marvelous job. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys political philosophy and examining the human condition.

    I so much like Dr. Ron Paul. I wished I could read all of his books. I just don't have time. I hang on his every word in the apolitical revolutionist within me, if that man of unquestionable integrity could grasp that which is so vile and corrupt . . . but alas. . .

    Can you summarize Levin's main points in this book?

    I'm currently reading Fabric of a Cosmos, by Prof. Brian Green. It's my second reading of this book. The first time around with Green's books I generally get use to the terminology and learn new words. The second time around, the amazing concepts start to sink in.

    I'm currently reading Fabric of a Cosmos, by Prof. Brian Green. It's my second reading of this book. The first time around with Green's books I generally get use to the terminology and learn new words. The second time around, the amazing concepts start to sink in.
    In a nutshell, he is making the case of how America is turning away from Constitutionalism into Utopianism, and how we are losing the Civil Society through out of control government and the entitlement generation.

    Book description from Amazon.com:

    AN INTELLECTUALLY BRACING NEW VOLUME ON AMERICA’S TRANSFORMATION AND THE CLASH BETWEEN CONSTITUTIONALISM AND UTOPIANISM—FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER LIBERTY & TYRANNY , MARK R. LEVIN.

    Hailed by Rush Limbaugh as “the most compelling defense of freedom for our time,” and “the necessary book of the Obama era” by The American Spectator, Mark R. Levin’s Liberty and Tyranny made the most persuasive case for conservatism and against statism in a generation. In this most crucial time, this leading conservative thinker explores the psychology, motivations, and history of the utopian movement, its architects, and its modern-day disciples—and how the individual and American society are being devoured by it.

    Levin asks, what is this utopian force that both allures a free people and destroys them? Levin digs deep into the past and draws astoundingly relevant parallels to contemporary America from Plato’s Republic, Thomas More’s Utopia, Thomas Hobbes’s Leviathan, Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto . . . as well as from the critical works of John Locke, Charles Montesquieu, Alexis de Tocqueville,and other philosophical pioneers who brilliantly diagnosed the nature of man and government. As Levin meticulously pursues his subject, the reader joins him in an enlightening and compelling journey. And in the end, Levin’s message is clear: the American republic is in great peril. The people must now choose between utopianism or liberty.

    President Ronald Reagan warned, “freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.” Levin agrees, and with Ameritopia, delivers another modern political classic, an indispensable guide for America in our time and in the future.

    I just recently finished Ron Paul's The Revolution: A Manifesto and now am working on The Sex Lives of the Roman Emperors, which was given to me by a friend.

    Next up (by demand of my girlfriend) is Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter.

    I thoroughly enjoyed The Revolution as well, particularly the foreign policy parts.

    I have a half read book on my nightstand, Adam Smith's, Wealth of Nations.
    I have a half read book in the tv room, a biography on Ayn Rand.

    I don't expect I'll finish either by the end of summer. I'll probably start a third book which I won't finish. Frankly, as of late, my attention span is not worth a ****.

    I didn't read this book, but I did read "Who Cut My Cheese," by Spencer Johnsonn with two 'n's.

    -- Vague reference to Monty Python's, The Cheese Shop.
