Links: Eschatology Edition
I admit that the news has been pretty gloomy lately. The global economic malaise was bad enough, but the fallout from the Japan earthquake, an "intervention" in Libya, and general unrest in the Middle East have stirred up some pessimism in the blogosphere. Today's blogroll additions deal with that sentiment head-on:
Foseti - A blog about politics, both of the moment and in the abstract. If you've ever wondered why elections don't seem to change anything but the letters after your representatives' names, there's plenty of insight here into the bureacrat state. The overall philosophy of the blog is best summed up by the following quote: "Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide." - John Adams
Two-Four - The herald of the Endarkenment, Billy Beck is almost, but not quite, entirely unlike Glenn Beck. The posts on Two--Four are short, simple, and to the point, usually commenting on some disturbing economic fact or marveling at the ignorance and corruption of the political class. Unfortunately, in this day and age, Billy Beck posts a lot.
