We are developing the social individualist meta-context for the future. From the very serious to the extremely frivolous... lets see what is on the mind of the Samizdata people.

Samizdata, derived from Samizdat /n. - a system of clandestine publication of banned literature in the USSR [Russ.,= self-publishing house]

Make it big!

Last September two very big towers in New York were zapped by terrorists, and ever since then the argument has bubbled along about what ought to be done with the site once all the debris was cleared away, as it now has been. I’ve only just seen the piece in which, last Wednesday (which I’m learning is like a month ago in blog time), Anne Coulter says: rebuild and rebuild big! I agree, and I hope (and I learn that) New York does, and probably will.

Ask yourself this. What would Al Qaeda want? A park and some silly sculpture? They’d love that. That would be game set and match to them. Two huge concrete and metal fingers raised to the sky, or maybe one even bigger one, featured on every other photo of New York for the next five decades? They’d hate that. There you go.
