News from the Network, Vol. 6, No. 04

We think we’ve figured out why the Just Third Way hasn’t (yet) captured the popular imagination to any great extent.  The Onion hasn’t parodied us, and Mad Magazine has implemented a strict “hands off” policy.

If only some radio host would report that we had drones flying over the upcoming rally at the Federal Reserve in Washington, DC, on April 26, or that the People’s Daily Online would copy a story that this writer is the sexiest man alive . . . oh.  Forget that.  Satire only works when it’s so outrageous as to be unbelievable.

Until that happens, here’s what’s been happening:

• Plans are being finalized for the annual Rally at the Fed, to take place on April 26, 2013 in Washington, DC.  Plan on coming and demonstrating in support of Capital Homesteading.

• The annual “March for Life” is today.  Consider sending a copy of Supporting Life: The Case for a Pro-Life Economic Agenda (2010) to a favored legislator or organization.  Bulk prices available on request.

• Further discussions have taken place regarding the implementation of Just Third Way pilot programs in Louisville, Kentucky, Cleveland, Ohio, and the Bronx.

• As of this morning, we have had visitors from 56 different countries and 48 states and provinces in the United States and Canada to this blog over the past two months. Most visitors are from the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, India, and the Philippines. People in Sweden, South Korea, Nepal, the United States, and Malta spent the most average time on the blog. The most popular postings this past week were “Thomas Hobbes on Private Property,” “News from the Network, Vol. 6, No. 2,” “Islamic Banking,” “How to Redeem Economics,” and “Aristotle on Private Property.”

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.
