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]

Samizdata quote of the day

Sheldon Cooper is a typical very smart guy who thinks that because he is an expert in one field, he therefore knows everything about all other subjects as well. I suspect that he would be quite a fan of a centrally planned society, provided he was the one doing the planning.

– George Mulberry

    You can find the same attitudes in the American small town barbershops; in the nests of drivers of London’s black cabs; amongst Parisian academics.

    It was the lesson of the establishment of Gorki by those of the Soviet apparatus facing a dearth of thinkers to match the nuclear threat from the West.

    Once minds start thinking about anything, they tend to go on thinking about everything.
