Comment on 104 Mill on Liberty (1990) by ctrlshift http://rickroderick.org/104-mill-on-liberty-1990/comment-page-1/#comment-59350 Sat, 23 Aug 2014 05:08:35 +0000 http://rickroderick.org/104-mill-on-liberty-1990/#comment-59350 There is suggested reading for each course at the end of the lecture notes. The books, movies and people that he references all have wikipedia links within the transcripts which should make them easy to find on each page. Your idea is still valid though, I’ll give it some thought. The only reservation I have is that some of the TV shows and movies he references he doesn’t actually endorse, he’s only referencing them to make a point.

From 203: “These are horrible movies; don’t go see all these movies. Hellraiser is a terrible movie.”

I found the lecture back on Youtube using Google searching for “Rick Roderick Interview (1987)” but it might be handier to be able to just play it on this page.

If I had the time I would do it, but you know job,work, and family makes time hard to come by.

There are download links for the videos at the top of each page. They are preceded by the word “Download:”, so just search for that on any of the lecture pages if you can’t see it.

I’m going to a country that blocks youtube.com, however, and thus I’m going to lose access to Rick’s wonderful video lecture series, as it is blocked in that country). I wonder if anyone knows of a hidden place where I can find the videos (other than youtube)? I couldn’t even find a dvd for sale on amazon (audio casettes only, and who has an audio player these days?).

Thanks,

I like the fact that he puts humor into what he says and I like the fact that he says what he wants to say without ambiguity.

I really wish I could have met him and studied him a bit more (through latter works, had he lived longer)It is a pity that he died at such a young age, but alas, I agree with Frank, no one knows the time or date, but that death comes for us all is sure. And here I also admire his honesty, few philosophers acknowledge the terrible specter of death.

I just discovered a great man today and I wanted to tell him, one Texan to another, that his lectures are amazing, his humor sublime. Alas, I am 12 years too late… but, it is almost fitting, after his last remarks on Heidegger (lecture 2 in Self Under Siege) he says, “…but for now that’s all except be sure and fear death. I mean, that’s important to being human. Fear death and realise that even if you don’t smoke, and even if you jog, you are still going to die, and that should come as a great relief to all of you.”

http://www.ceeol.com/aspx/getdocument.aspx?logid=5&id=c9f31e9c-bc04-46a5-9bdd-930202f892d9
I’m very excited as I’ve been looking for it for years. If only I could’ve got it when I was trying to write an essay on Derrida in college though.

But have you considered the reasonable fact that both systems of govt are controlled by the same people. When you look closely at history, you’ll see the moneyed interest fund both sides and could care less about the system of govt.
