I've been more than a tad delinquet in updating for the past week. I've been busy with school and wasting time in other ways. For example, I've finished Civilization and Its Enemies and it's very different than what I expected. It will take a little more time to organize a cogent critique. In the meantime, might I suggest perusing these two chapters by Bill Whittle of Eject Eject Eject (link also in the sidebar). Good stuff. I would also recommend reading all his essays linked in the main page. They are long but interesting reads. Whittle almost has me believing that most people aren't complete morons, pretty impressive.
