Economics and similar, for the sleep-deprived
A subtle change has been made to the comments links, so they no longer pop up. Does this in any way help with the problem about comments not appearing on permalinked posts, readers?
Update: seemingly not
Update: Oh yeah!

A brief note on Ayn Rand and Objectivism
Atlas did not carry the world on his shoulders. He carried the sky on his shoulders, while standing on the earth (specifically, just outside the Gardens of the Hesperides).
If he had been carrying the earth on his shoulders, what would he have stood on?
(according to numerous artists from the Classical period to the present day, the answer is apparently "a rather ridiculous-looking little plinth", but this is hardly going to pass any test of rigorous analytical logic, is it? Examine your premises!)
