Mr. Brainwash hits Los Angeles

I dropped Goethe and bid them adieu, "None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free."

Glenn C. Loury has an interesting article in Boston Review online called "The Call of the Tribe: Where are the boundaries between our group and ourselves?"


Jessa "Bookslut" Crispin has an interesting article on feminism and pornography at The Smart Set.
