Best Thing I've Read Today

From Browser.com:

Daniel Gilbert, on individualism:

Yes, it’s true that you may like strawberry ice cream more than chocolate, whereas I prefer chocolate. But that shouldn’t obscure the much bigger point: everybody likes ice cream more than they like gall-bladder surgery

  1. Just moments ago I finished re-reading J.S. Mill's On Liberty for the first time since the Spring of 2007; it was for class-prep purposes and (surprisingly) I found his assessment of Individualism refreshing this time. I'm terribly impressed with your blog and mode of thought. You're always relevant, here.
