My brother told me about the MIT university open courseware site http://ocw.mit.edu/index.html.
I finished printing all the readings for my presentation on the creation and reform of hacker laws for Thursday, October 2nd. The presentation is then a week later on the 9th. I am basically ok now in LAWS4305 just waiting for my first marked asssignment back this Thursday. I have been steadily working on this course.
I got my LAWS3205 textboook yesterday and have read the first article in the book last night. Consumer law is very narrow in its focus. It also does not have a fixed rule based structure yet.
I am reading a history of anarchism, entitled Anarchism by Richard D. Sonn, HX 828 S636. Like any English person, I don't trust the name Richard. That is based on Richard the third and his murderous ways.
I am staying up late with no school or work tomorrow. I am going to buy a music book for a friend's birthday tomorrow. I am also meeting with some worker's defense people later in the evening. I gave a little interview about an old collective tonight to a fellow worker.

Taxes, taxes and more taxes.
I started to write a new short story. My character is, of course, accussed of a hacking crime, but in this case he is either going to be innocent, or his only crime will be stealing copyrighted music. But that is a serious thing, so he will be dealt with seriously.

Next question Hamptom on strikes. The usual most labour disputes not settled with strikes. Eve's short on school money. Hampton claims Eve's is attacking teachers. Hamptom exposes the salaries. Dalton also attacks. End to dropping out. My wife dropped out because the teachers were mean and cruel. Dalton raising school leaving age. Dalton fails to see reasons for leaving school. Dalton get on the phone with the PMO and get the drug laws changed less students will drop out.
Academic subject not according to Dalton. Ok I know the Tories deregulated the price of law school out of my range. Idealist but Dalton drops the part-time label. All their kids go to the U. What about the ordinary people?
Eve's, well their government paid for my education for free. Maybe the NDP or Liberals put that in place maybe the Tories I am not sure.

Imagine we are all wise people sitting on top of mountains
the mountains exist at varying heights and places on the planet
The height is determined by how good we are
The relation of our acts to others is like the relation of the mountains in space
The various laws are the vehicles that travel too and fro between the mountains
Some crime law enforcement vehicles some civil enforcement law vehicles travel around between us as we act and react to each other
These are climbing vehicles that must scale the mountains
But beauty is the kinetic energy that drives these vehicles
the higher they climb the more beautiful
We look around from our heights at other mountains and see others our associates because we are on a similar height
Those higher up can look down with moral indignation on the lessor peaks
Winds are the actions that we commit blowing between us up and down the slopes and through the valleys.

P.S. I found one of our two prong extension cords to use with the laptop in class so no extra purchase needed today.
