Let's take a break 

ON THE LIGHTER SIDE

This page contains material intended to provide a break from the rigors of public (as opposed, say, to private) politicosocioeconomic system design and analysis. Humor and enlightenment being intimately and inextricably intertwined (not to mention absolutely essential for rational, humanistic, peaceful, democratic and successful introduction of advanced politicosocioeconomic systems), we have here inaugurated and on occasion will supplement this collection of attempts at humor and other distractions. So far, this Lighter Side list commences with some Limericks about Economists, followed by a brief glance back into our common African ancestry and source of Majority Rule, the madness of "Meanwhile," some attempts at poetry, some further scribblings, a vision of one future, and ending, for the time being, with some thoughts of Thomas Jefferson regarding reasonable taxation, which, it must be confessed, is found most amusing.
