A brilliant article from McSweeney's: http://www.mcsweeneys.net/2010/8/12hague.html

I severely dislike Ayn Rand. I can't believe people think her philosophy is even vaguely acceptable or that her novels are even vaguely readable.

POLL: When do you have a reaction of disdain or horror when you see what somebody is reading on the bus?

I started reading Ran Prieur a few years ago, when I was researching peak oil. He is unusual, but interesting, and he sometimes posts links to some fascinating articles, like the ones about eating road kill.

Today's link, an article on Alternet.org, is not as light, fluffy, and uplifting as other topics such as eating road kill. The question is asked, has the US passed the tipping point to fascism?
