free political philosophy treatise of the day
Matthew Yglesias links to this free online version of Hobbes' Leviathan, endorsing it as "the best work of political philosophy ever."
That may be, but waaaay back in my Political Philosophy clas, I found it mighty boring, too--exceeded only by The Communist Manifesto.
The link comes in Yglesias' citation of this Pandagon post that scoffs at an NRO column claiming the Lott flap was manufactured by Democrats (must have missed the memo declaring the party line to be that it was Republicans showing how virtuous they all are*...).
*I'm being snarky here; I've already credited principled conservatives for their sincere and justifiable outrage over Lott's comments.
