Current Obsession

The realization of Economic, Social and Cultural Rights are currently preoccupying me.

Hayek pronounces that political freedom is impotent without economic freedom. He explains: The economic freedom which is the prerequisite of any freedom cannot be the freedom from economic care which the socialists promise us and which can be obtained only by relieving the individual at the same time of the necessity and the power of choice; it must be freedom of our economic activity which, with the right choice, inevitably carries the risk and the responsibility of that right
Friedrich Hayek, The Road To Serfdom (reissued 1971) 75.


Meanwhile. Tick tock. The clock goes. Thursday already. I have a report due in two weeks. Tick Tock

Just 6 posts and you've blown me away with your eloquence and quiet but acute observation of things and happenings. *bows*

Thank you thank you for dropping by!! Visitors are ALWAYS welcome in Blabland!! :)

So what ARE you doing now, having made perhaps the best (and to me, enviable) decision of leaving the legal profession?

My guess is academia.. warm or cold?

Here's to more splenderful posts!! That IS a delightful word!! *smiles)

Blabs! Hello and thank you. Yes, you are right. I am an academic wannabe. Will post details one day. Will also drop by Blab-land when I can. I think the enjoyment is mutual.
