Words to live by...

"How beautiful it is to do nothing, and to rest afterward."

[Spanish Proverb]

Ius luxuriae publice datum est

(The right to looseness has been officially given)

"Everyone carries a part of society on his shoulders," wrote Ludwig von Mises, "no one is relieved of his share of responsibility by others. And no one can find a safe way for himself if society is sweeping towards destruction. Therefore everyone, in his own interest, must thrust himself vigorously into the intellectual battle."

Apparently, the crossword puzzle that disappeared from the blog, came back.

Grab a picket sign, comrade

China is undergoing a rapid social change. The proof of this is in this story:

Of course, it won't mean anything significant until there are strikes at China's own plants. So far, it seems the strikes have been at Japanese and Taiwanese owned plants.

Welcome to modern capitalism, my Chinese friends, with all its benefits and pitfalls.
