Fishing Goals for 2021 Preview #1

I am planning on publishing my fishing goals for 2021 on March 1st. I think I will preview a few of my new goals for this year before I release them in their entirety next Monday.  I did my first fishing goal list here at Bass Pundit back in 2006. I didn't blog another list of goals until 2016. I have done it every year since always releasing them in March.Under Technique & Tackle Goals I plan on adding 7 new goals for 2021. Among them are catching fish on at least 100 different lures, catchin...

The Bounds of Political Discourse: Why the Trump Bans Make Sense

Several technology firms have recently banned Donald Trump for inciting a riotous, deadly insurrection. Many have criticized these decisions as censorship. Experts on free expression law have patiently explained that only the state is bound by the First Amendment, not private companies. From this perspective, the public/private distinction is paramount, and tech firms fall on the right side of it, as speakers themselves (rather than regulators of speech). But what if it is precisely the public c...

Plato’s utopia and why you don’t want to live there

Plato's "Republic" is the first utopian novel, complete with an ideal city—the Kallipolis. The totalitarian leanings of the Kallipolis have lead many thinkers to move in the opposite direction since then.Even if we don't like it, having to explain why we don't is a useful exercise. Literature and philosophy are littered with visions of utopia drawn up by thinkers with various ideological frameworks. Some are based on alternative economic systems; some are designed to fit a specific view of huma...

Ballot for deceased voter raises concerns about L.A. County election integrity

It wasn’t exactly news to Jonathan Savell that the previous owner of the home he purchased seven years ago was deceased. He bought it on probate. But when two vote-by-mail ballots showed up this week, one for him and one for the previous owner, it made him wonder about the integrity of the November election. Due to the coronavirus, this is the first year every active voter in the state received a mail-in ballot. “Everybody has concerns about integrity and stuff. I think that it is not a partisan...

The Meaning of Life According to Simone de Beauvoir

When someone presumes to explain the meaning of life, they usually draw, however vaguely, on religion. Many a philosopher has ventured a secular answer, but it’s hard to compete with the ancient stories of the world’s major faiths. The richness of their metaphors surpasses historical truth; humans, it seems, really “cannot bear very much reality,” as T.S. Eliot . Maybe we need stories to keep us going, which is why we love Plato, whose myth of the origins of love in his novella, the Sym...

The Forgotten Frenzy Popper

So I was reading through some old Bass Pundit Blog posts this morning from November 2009 when I came across the one when I talked about the Frenzy Popper being discontinued.  That got me to thinking.  Did I even catch a fish on one this year? So I went and checked on Fish Swami to get the answer.  The answer was no I did not.  I was a little shocked by that.  How could it be that I didn't even catch a single fish on a lure I just adore.  I then opened the database query to include all the years...

Why most scientists think birds are dinosaurs – and you should too

We used to think—and many of us were taught in school—that the dinosaurs went extinct many millions of years ago.  But now it seems like this might not be the case.  Today’s biologists tend to think birds are dinosaurs, which means that, if true, the dinosaurs did not go entirely extinct after all.  Some of them survived.Scientific ideas can change over time—just as scientific ideas about birds, dinosaurs and extinction have changed over time.   Change like this means scientific experts can be w...

Does Democracy Demand the Tolerance of the Intolerant? Karl Popper’s Paradox

Photo via Wikimedia Commons In the past few years, when far-right nationalists are banned from social media, violent extremists face boycotts, or institutions refuse to give a platform to racists, a faux-outraged moan has gone up: “So much for the tolerant left!” “So much for liberal tolerance!” The complaint became so hackneyed it turned into an already-hackneyed meme. It’s a wonder anyone thinks this line has any rhetorical force. The equation of tolerance with acquiescence, passivity, or a t...

As a family, we recently had a chance to get some tickets to Mr. Popper's Penguins at the Children's Theatre Company. It was a really fun time and we were very glad we were able to go.

PWC recommended that corporations should ask science fiction writers about the future

In 2017, Pricewaterhousecooper published Using science fiction to explore business innovation, a guide for corporations that wanted to work with sf writers to think about the future of their businesses; it was part of a wave of corporate interest in the insights of sf writers, which also coincides with a parallel trend in academia (see, for example, ASU's Center for Science and the Imagination and UCSD's Clark Center for Human Imagination, both of which I have some involvement with).

Don’t Be Seduced by the “Glamour of Evil”

Many Catholics will be familiar with the question, “Do you reject the glamour of evil?”  that was part of the older form of the renewal of baptismal promises. It’s a phrase that, I think, offers some unique insight into the reaction many Catholics are having to the ongoing scandals in the Church. Wilde Times I suspect most people interpret the phrase, “the glamour of evil” to mean that evil can seem superficially attractive.   As Oscar Wilde famously put it, “I can resist everything…except tem...

Thomas Kuhn and the T. S. Kuhn Archives at MIT

After I completed a book on Thomas Kuhn, the author of Structure of Scientific Revolutions, I thought I knew a lot about him. In my book, I argue that Kuhn’s recent, less frequently read work is key to understanding his views. Then I began to look in detail at Kuhn’s past and the influence his early work had in fields other than philosophy of science. I came across an intriguing and unexpected remark by Thomas Walker, a political scientist, in Perspectives on Politics. Walker reports that “while...
