I’ve been blogging a lot about election-related issues recently, though the next week or so will probably see a shift in focus, for two reasons. The first is that I’m getting to the end of ‘After Virtue’, a very interesting book which will probably get a few posts. The second is that tomorrow and Saturday I’m attending Self to Polis, a graduate philosophy conference being held here in Toronto. Both of these are likely to produce posts on such nebulous themes as culture, moral education, communal loyalty, etc.
Other than that, I’ll leave you with a few links:
- An analysis of why the Libdem’s ‘£10,000 tax-free’ is actually regressive, and widens income inequality – I’m not really qualified to say if the sums are right but it’s interesting notheless.
- How thinking biases may keep the ConDem coalition together.
- As a new general strike is called in Greece, a variety of anarchist groups issue statements, with a variety of positions, on the implications of the bank workers’ deaths on the 5th.
