Attn: LA Reasonoids! Double Book Party, Sept. 29!

|

What: Reason magazine and the L.A. Press Club invite you to a party celebrating the publication of Choice: The Best of Reason, edited by Reason editor-in-chief Nick Gilllespie, and "This Is Burning Man," by Reason senior editor Brian Doherty…

When: Wednesday, Sept. 29, from 6 to 9 p.m…

Where: Maple Drive Restaurant, 345 Maple Dr., Beverly Hills. Cash bar, complimentary hors d'oeuvres. Valet parking available on Alden Dr. (just west of Maple)…

WHY: Because in the last 10 years, Reason magazine has been instrumental in reframing the traditional left vs. right divide to that of choice vs. control. Because the San Francisco Weekly recently described "This is Burning Man" as "arguably the best prose ever written about the 18-year-old festival"…

RSVP is a MUST, by Sept. 26, to: Mary.Toledo@reason.org or call Mary at (310) 391-3325.

NEXT: Government Bulldada

  1. Because in the last 10 years, Reason magazine has been instrumental in reframing the traditional left vs. right divide to that of choice vs. control.

    The fuck? You people are having delusions of relevance. The right/left paradigm still holds, in spite of the fact that the left moved to the center and the right has gone over to the far left. Freedom vs. Oppression may be infinitely more useful, but nobody outside us geeks could give a flying flaming fuck or a rolling doughnut.

  2. Waren,

    It’s in part due to the fact that the traditional placeholders on the left-right political spectrum have been in a state of profound flux that the dichotomy of choice vs. control has gained ascendancy. I think that that Reason has been a vanguard for this paradigm and that it is the most vital perspective from which to observe politics.

    The political spectrum that makes the most sense when we are informed from this perspective is the Cartesian spectrum that has no government control of economic activity on the rightmost point of the X axis and no government control of social/ civil activity on the top most point of the Y axis: http://tinyurl.com/3tp5e (scroll down)

    Another enhancement to political vision comes when we extend the concept of “unintended consequences” (an enhancement in itself) to; “intended but unspoken consequences”. The recognition that people conspire for political power throws substantial illumination on political processes.
