“It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood; if they be repealed or revised before they are promulgated, or undergo such incessant changes that no man, who knows what the law is today, can guess what it will be tomorrow. Law is defined to be a rule of action; but how can that be a rule, which is little known, and less fixed?” – James Madison
As you might have noticed, I have a links page list of blogs I visit. These are blogs that are more or less consistently interesting. Often, I will link to posts from these blogs that I find interesting or relevant to something I want to write about, but recently I found a blog that is so interesting on such a consistent basis that I thought it deserved to be highlighted in its own post.
At anewkindofparty you can find links and information about alternative voting methods, campaign financing, demographics, or anything else pertaining to either third parties trying to make inroads or single-issue activists trying to work within the system. There is more often than not enough commenters to make for interesting conversation as well. It does at times become slightly academic, but I like that sort of thing. Check it out.
Since you like reading my blog so much, I thought I would write a book. The Nutcase Across The Street is about how many of us withdraw from engaging those who think differently than us and why we need to reach out to them to keep our society from becoming ever more polarized.
