Reverse Psychology and the Last Knight

October 24, 2007 by

Well, the level of Live Journal seems to be rising:

Well, my roommate and his girlfriend attempted to throw me out of my lull by using reverse psychology and general teasing. I appreciate their efforts, but I’m not really one to respond well to psychological manipulation. Perhaps it’s a power thing with me, not wanting to conceive of myself as impotent. Others have commented on my overly self-burdensome attitude and attribution of almost everything to a fault of my own, but I cannot really say that I ought not hold myself to such a standard….

I just took about one hour and spent it on myself. I read a little bit of the new biography of Ludwig Edler von Mises, The Last Knight of Liberalism, by Jorg Hulsmann (unfortunately, I cannot make all the nifty German notions above the proper vowels, but I think the idea goes across). I feel a little more relaxed and hopefully will be able to tackle my problems with a little more calm. I tried to see a professor today about some math issues, but he wasn’t there. Really, I’ve a lot of meta-mathematical and theoretical questions that I would like to ask, but I’m not sure how appropriate they are.

If you are reading this article, you are probably no ordinary American; you are most likely someone extremely interested in learning as much as you can about liberty and its economic counterpart, the Austrian School.
