Welcome to the January 26, 2012 edition of the Objectivist Round Up and the 17th time Erosophia has hosted!
Today’s quote is from Jean-Baptiste Say:
Alas, how many have been persecuted for the wrong of having been right?
If you have never read Say, he is worth reading and is a clear writer, even for those without a background in Economics.
Burgess Laughlin presents Making Progress: An Activist’s Choices posted at Making Progress, saying, “Who is an activist? What are the choices an activist faces once committed to activism? The answers are as varied as the personal values and individual abilities of the activists.”
Santiago and Kelly Valenzuela presents Give Thanks posted at Mother of Exiles, saying, “Short and sweet, but I love this image and the message it conveys!”
