Peter Saint-Andre's weblog "Politics grows out of culture (which in turn grows out of the thoughts and actions of individuals), so it's wrongheaded to look at things in purely political terms, as many libertarians do when they blame all ills on the behavior of the state. Certainly the state introduces immense distortions into culture and the life of the individual, but it is not the only cause of what ails us."

[questionnaire/toy] Cat Breed Selector. i can't help but see the various spoofs for how this will be for human baby selection in 30 years, were the technology to be developed and widely distributed. What questions would they ask on the Sony site? or Microsoft? or TW/AOL? And how will the various religions [or even philosophies] adapt to the times? Will you be able to tell a scientology baby from a pagan baby, to differentiate the children of objectivists from the children of evangelists, based only on their markings? 10% off all associated products, for life, if you let PhillipMorris bring your progeny into this world?
