RFTIT Tumblr Weekly Roundup!


It’s that time of the week again, folks! Work begins on ASOS again (I’ve got outlines for the next five chapters and quotes plugged in to Dany I and Bran I, so I can start writing those up this weekend), but in the mean-time, what do we have on the Tumblrs?

    I guess one should note, in deference to facts, that the American abolitionist arguments against slavery in the American South ended up being totally wrong with respect to productivity. Indeed, they were predicting that the end of slavery would lead to an explosion in the South’s cotton production. It didn’t; indeed, they couldn’t even maintain existing levels (as well, those writers tended to assume that the freedmen would work the fields for wages, which rather large numbers of them didn’t want to do, because it was a shitty job). Slavery was, in respect of that sort of backbreaking labour that isn’t innovation-dependent, more efficient. That doesn’t make it any less immoral, or deny that in respect of some sectors of the economy, a free society is better, of course.

    Nice to see John Rawls make an appearance.
