here at this late hour?
doesn't do it for me any more.
i need to be doing at least two things at once just to stay interested
we hate our friends, and we want to scour hype machine for all that makes us feel good about ourselves. By rolling in the mud of music, we can wash our worries away.
I'm not gonna go to bed at 11
I'm fairly sure my friend has bought a gun and wants me to do something with it.
Like 95% sure no BS.
He does like guns and things.
I'm hoping he doesn't want me to shoot someone.
with the most boring title EVER
On the plus side, it's my last piece of uni work... EVER.
I'm doing mine on J S Mill.
The course is about liberal thinkers... so by suggesting in which way they're liberal... there's not really all that much scope for debate...
It sounds a bit like the political philosophy I did at uni, which I really didn't like :(
Political philosophy is my favourite thing about studying politics... I hate lots of the more practical stuff.
I love Mill too, he's one of my favourites... this is a really stupid question though... it just is so... gah. There's no real debate, I'm having to create one a bit falsely.
although I find him quite hard to understand.
I think that's just a reflection of the difficulties I have with political philosophers though. I much more of a metaphysics man.
Sounds complicated. Maybe you could jazz up the essay title with a snazzy font?
except John Stuart Mill wrote On Liberty and had quite a good name
so, therefore, surely, the question posed is taking the piss. On the other hand, perhaps what is being asked is, in what way are the main tenets of Liberalism actually liberal.
...he is one of the most influential theorists though...
...he did however form a break with classic liberalism, allowing for some degree of state intervention in certain situation and as opened the door for welfare liberalism... so all the hardline liberals such as Spencer or Hayek would probably be very quick to say liberty wasn't necessarily his key principle...
...it's a bit tenuous mind.
It is still a stupid question though.
I use the internet as an excuse for not studying or writing songs.
it is more intellectualy stimulating than sex </ironic>
on who you fuck...
Ayn Rand wasn't the best but we sure had interesting pillow talk
