The End of History by Paul Craig Roberts
What a cynic he is! We were there to free Libyan citizens from the maniacal grip of the ruthless dictator. Weren't we?

Helen Fisher tells us why we love + cheat | Video on TED.com

Or perhaps there's more at play that we haven't tapped upon yet.

Now that's a real perpetual motion machine!
