I can’t believe I am writing an entry for the sole purpose of making a daily dig, but I am actually on a roll with some work for money and I don’t want to take the time to go off on some other topic. I am officially following the “Freedomain Radio and Liberating Minds” thread at FDR because those are the two groups I’ve been writing about combined in one thread, and I get email alerts whenever someone posts a new response. I got this one just now. It’s a very good response, but it’s long, and it’s about the argument from priority, which is the subject of most conversation today (some of it quite funny).
One sentence, however, jumped out at me.
Stefan suggests ending boring and dull relationships with one’s family, as boredom means the foregoing of more happiness-generating activities.
NOTE: This is one person’s interpretation of what Molyneux has said, and the poster doesn’t cite it and doesn’t provide any kind of source. It could be a total and complete misinterpretation. The quotation, therefore, indicates nothing more than what one member thinks about what Molyneux would do in some particular situation–it is not a representation of what Molyneux would actually do in a situation. (How’s that for a disclaimer?) Maybe someone else can look it up and see where he gets this idea, or maybe I will later. If this sentiment came out of a podcast, forget it. It would take a year to go through all of those listening for one particular paragraph, and–despite all evidence to the contrary–I have other things to do.
But could this possibly be true? You can deFOO not just because your family are evil statists who advocate the use of force against you, but if they are boring, too?
Now back to my revenue-generating activities. I am very lucky that they are not boring. I am very sad that they are late, but that’s what you get with a piss-poor work ethic.
