CHAMPIONS OF FREEDOM? Outside the Beltway has some observations, and links to other observations, about Reason's 35 Heroes of Freedom.
For all of its many problems, the world we live in is dizzying in its variety, breathtaking in its riches, and wide-ranging in its options. Malcontents on the right and left who diagnose modernity as suffering from "affluenza" or "options anxiety" will admit this much: These days we’ve even got a greater choice of ways to be unhappy. Which may be as close to a definition of utopia as we’re likely to come.
I'm not sure if that's supposed to be a feature or a bug.
