Dear Self Interested Ontologists,


I just watched all nine episodes of Adam Curtis’s BBC documentaries about self interest, into which he mixed freedom, democracy, and history, at least as seen from his viewpoint.  He describes Isaiah Berlin’s teachings of positive and negative liberty, and traces them through the cold war to the present.  Those with interest in the topic should watch them as well.  There is no nice math to read, but his insights are well worth watching and considering.
