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

The Idiocy That is Facebook
Here is the Word from Zuckerberg on the tenth anniversary of its launch.
Let me quote it in its entirety:
" When I reflect on the last 10 years, one question I ask myself is: why were we the ones to build this? We were just students. We had way fewer resources than big companies. If they had focused on this problem, they could have done it.
The only answer I can think of is: we just cared more."
Why is the world without Facebook a "problem?" I ask that sincerely because I no longer participate in Facebook. And that was an adventure in itself... getting out of Facebook once you created a page. It was not simple and, apparently, not immediate (sign in within some time period I no longer know the length of and you are re-established).
