Steve Sailer makes an interesting observation on Japan: everyone says that it’s screwed, yet it seems to be doing fine. I’ve been to Japan. Tokyo functions much better than any American city. Even a trip through the airport will make American decline apparent.

Devin opines on libertarian thuggery:

Laura Grace Robins on craving cavemen.

Random thought: While I was on vacation a couple weeks ago, we met up with six of my wife’s college friends. They seem to be happy in direct proportion to which they are leading a 1950s style lifestyle (the happiest is the one who stays home with the kid, then the married one with a kid, then the married ones, and finally the single ones). I would never suggest that this template is right for everyone, but I would suggest that having a template is not a bad thing.

From Business Insider: “According to a 2009 blog post from ABC news, there are over 112 ways that news media has written the name of possibly crazy Libyan president, Muammar Qaddafi, since 1998. ABC, by the way, spells it Moammar Gaddafi.”
