Magna Carta: Eight Centuries of Liberty – WSJ

“It was at Runnymede, on June 15, 1215, that the idea of the law standing above the government first took contractual form. King John accepted that he would no longer get to make the rules up as he went along. From that acceptance flowed, ultimately, all the rights and freedoms that we now take for granted: uncensored newspapers, security of property, equality before the law, habeas corpus, regular elections, sanctity of contract, jury trials.”

There is a certain irony beginning to emerge as governments struggle with individual freedoms…

Infidelity Lurks in Your Genes – NYTimes.com

“We are accustomed to thinking of sexual infidelity as a symptom of an unhappy relationship, a moral flaw or a sign of deteriorating social values. When I was trained as a psychiatrist we were told to look for various emotional and developmental factors — like a history of unstable relationships or a philandering parent — to explain infidelity.

But during my career, many of the questions we asked patients were found to be insufficient because for so much behavior, it turns out that genes, gene expression and hormones matter a lot.”

Explaining a Cornerstone of Game Theory: John Nash’s Equilibrium – NYTimes.com

I wonder…if the way we die is an irony emerging…

Covey died riding a bicycle…Nash dies in a taxi…

I find the irony interesting…

You will see in this video a part of beautiful mind…which in fact is just drama and NOT a representation of the “Nash equilibrium” –> ironic to me…success (drama) @BS is even worth misleading the nature of meaning–> not ironic;)

I had one of the MyPALS edit out all the sexist drama and capture the ideas about Adam smith mentioned in the clip to serve another purpose, but forgot where it is…if she reads this, she can send to me…any wagers? Hehe.
