Quite nice to see a forum like this on the net where there is actually a category called "think tank" and that category is not completely dead. I have written a bit about government and I would very much like peer reviews: Persistence Society Introduction Articles (Ordered newest first ): Ownership Strong Government, Weak Officials Logic, Knowledge, Motives, and Society Government and Persistence If not persistence, then what? The Fallacy of a Return to the Constitution My writings are primarily concerned with what I call a persistence society. I imagine if you've read books with the idea of "natural law" or the idea of social contracts, you'll be interested in reading my short writings. The first link is to the introduction which serves as a starting point for getting into the idea of society and government; so, it itself doesn't go much into society or government.
