Living in a place that is gloomy and rainy 10 months a year has a few (very few) advantages. I’ve been reading quite a few interesting books. American Gods was my first Neil Gaiman’s and it was so good that it led me to read another two (Fragile Things and Neverwhere). Unfortunately, I think I am done with him. After a while it all started to read the same.
I’ve also been watching a lot of movies. Funny how Watchmen was different than I thought. It is a essentially a bad movie, with some very interesting characters. I am thinking about reading “Watchmen and Philosophy: A Rorschach Test”.
Talking about that, this article says that Rorschach is Alan Moore’s vision of an Objectivist superhero. I wonder how a communist hero would be like. At least we already know how a Democrat superhero looks like.
My daughter needs to write an essay about the differences between capitalism and socialism.
That is what I call bad timing.
