Bookmarked. This is superb stuff. I’ve been wanting to read more into Hesiod since I saw him mentioned briefly in Economic Thought Before Adam Smith.

I grant thee 10 Mises points, which you can redeem at your nearest PDA, once anarcho-capitalism is attained.

Now I know she says it in the movie, but does she say it in the book too?

Indeed, the text is pretty close.

“Many things I can command the Mirror to reveal, and to some I can show what they desire to see. But the Mirror will also show things unbidden, and those are often stranger and more profitable than things we wish to behold. What you will see, if you leave the Mirror free to work, I cannot tell. For it shows things that were, and things that are, and things that yet may be. But which it is that he sees, even the wisest cannot always tell. Do you wish to look?”
