Games & anarchism

This draft has been gathering dust since September 27, 2008. So let me fill out the missing information: Anarchists are much more childish than games will ever be.

Confucianism & democracy, Hall & Ames

Checking in

It has been over three years since my last post.  I have experienced technical difficulties in attempts to reactivate this blog. If I succeed I will publish several unpublished drafts that have been sitting in limbo.
