Environmentalism On the eve of Thanksgiving, a federal district court judge may have conceded that there will be no federal trial in a case to force the federal government to take more aggressive action to curb greenhouse gas emissions so as to forestall global climate change. After a not-too-subtle rebuke from the Supreme Court and U. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, the trial court judge in Juliana v. This action came in response to a none-too-subtle rebuke from the Supreme Court suggesting the trial court was a bit out of line -- a message that does not bode well for the plaintiffs' claims.
Gang Rape In France: The Times carries this disturbing story about gang rape among North African immigrants in France, and tolerance of the practice by the immigrant community.
You know it's bad when Richard Gephardt can credibly accuse you of of adopting a position so protectionist that it's "demagoguing. Bush has been awful on trade, of course. But I'm just not going to get enthusiastic about someone running for president on the platform that Bush hasn't been protectionist enough, someone who promises to go still further in that direction.
Everyone professes to think Dean's a straight-shooting kind of guy. Libertarians-for-Dean, do you believe Dean's promises about trade? I'm pretty close to launching libertarians-for-Lieberman.
I don't necessarily want Lieberman to be president; but I sure want him to do better than humiliatingly-badly in the Democratic primaries, since right now he's the most pro-free-trade candidate from either major party. It was a major accomplishment of the Clinton restructuring of the Democratic Party that it beat back the Gephardtians and got trade agreements passed.
I'm not going to be happy to see the Democrats whether they win or lose the White House revert to their bad old ways on the issue. Yes, I'd probably prefer Lieberman to Dean on other grounds-- not least the foreign policy questions that are attracting some libertarians to the latter.
I felt like writing Joe a check purely on the basis of the speech he gave at the Arab-American convention last week, though I didn't in the end. But it's trade, and the future of the Democratic Party on trade, that concerns me. One of the things that's supposed to be hopeful about the Tuxeira "emerging Democratic majority" thesis is that it's a Democratic Party built on professionals rather than unions, and so friendlier to trade.
That's the kind of Democratic Party I would think libertarians should want to encourage. If we're going to have posts about bumper stickers, might as well throw one in about bumper sticker law: Cunnigham was ticketed for a bumper sticker that said "Shit happens," and he challenged the conviction on First Amendment grounds.
The Court sided with Cunningham, relying correctly on Cohen v. The Event of the Age: Victor Davis Hanson explains here why "each day the great gamble in Iraq is taking on significance that transcends the immediate tactical advantages that accrued from ridding the world of Saddam Hussein's savagery.
I'll be especially pleased when the function is extended to amazon. Virginia's exactly right about this: One of the most exciting effects of Amazon's full-text search is that it restores books to students' reference sets.
As many a professor has complained, kids these days think if a text isn't on the Internet it doesn't exist. But not much written before the mids, and very little in books, can be Googled. Hence, for many young or busy researchers, most of the world's written knowledge might as well not exist.
Amazon's search engine is a great advance for civilization--and for authors. Work that would have gone unread will now be read and, along the way, books that would have gone unsold will now be bought.
And one correspondent points out to me that the engine provides a slight boost to the catching-plagiarists side of the technological arms race between plagiarists and thhose trying to stop them. Anything that makes text and phrase searches of more sources free might tempt some into copying-- but it also makes it easy to catch them, since the enforcing prof can enter phrases from dubious papers.
But I'm not sure how much plagiarism comes out of books anymore anyways; finding the right passage in a book to copy is more work than going to an online paper mill. That does not mean the paper mills are a good idea.
The quality of the papers is conspicuously low. You're going to be surprised at how easy it is for a prof to sniff out a paper from one of them-- and the fact that you went behind a paid-credit-card wall to get the paper provides a lot less protection than it used to A reader writes about my recommendation of MI I saw your note about the show MI-5 on the Volokh Conspiracy.Summer (vol.
