This has been a week of great activity with respect to meetings — at which a lot of work is done, but very little that is reportable as "news." The stock market, of course (duplicating events that led up to the Crash of 1929) continues to fluctuate wildly, even in Japan, where the actual productive businesses are looking at a bleak future . . . unless the Just Third Way can be implemented.
As for the rest of the world,
• A number of important contacts have been made, one with a lawyers association, with which we've scheduled a meeting in early April.
• Work progresses on a major article that shows the connection between the natural moral law, human positive law, and the monetary and fiscal reforms advocated under the Just Third Way. The connection between power and property is being strongly emphasized.
• Outreach continues on the Harris Neck initiative. Much is still in the discussion stage, but even there, progress is being made.
• Guy Stevenson of Iowa has been working on creating animated vignettes of the Just Third Way. This is a difficult task, considering the fact that much of the material is "outside the box" for most people, and is thus considered somewhat esoteric, rendering the feat of animating it all the more impressive.
• As of this morning, we have had visitors from 49 different countries and 46 states and provinces in the United States and Canada to this blog over the past two months. Most visitors are from the United States, Canada, the UK, India, and Poland. People in Germany, Venezuela, the Philippines, Poland, and Malaysia spent the most average time on the blog. The most popular posting this past week was once again "Thomas Hobbes on Private Property," followed by "Aristotle on Private Property," "The New Manifest Destiny," "Attaining Justice in the Arab World," and "The Wrath of Keynes, or, The Fall of the House of Hayek."
Those are the happenings for this week, at least that we know about. If you have an accomplishment that you think should be listed, send us a note about it at mgreaney [at] cesj [dot] org, and we'll see that it gets into the next "issue." If you have a short (250-400 word) comment on a specific posting, please enter your comments in the blog — do not send them to us to post for you. All comments are moderated anyway, so we'll see it before it goes up.
