Laurier & Rousseau

Wilfrid Laurier’s Lecture on Political Liberalism is currently my distraction of choice.  Volume II of Richard Gwyn’s Nation Maker: Sir John A. MacDonald has been sitting on my desk, ready to read, for weeks now as well.  This will be a recurring theme – piles of unread books, waiting to be cracked.  On that note, the Coffee Philosopher has a nice list of books that one should read before they’re 30.  I have only a few months left.  I am also mere hours away from my yearly sojourn through Jean-Jacques Rousseau’s Discourse on the Origin and Foundations of Inequality Among Men.  Maybe this year I’ll finally understand this most philosophic and esoteric of works.
