Great album.  That's about when I tuned in to him.  Really talented and under-appreciated artist, IMO.

 
I didn't realize it was a Buckingham-Nicks production, but upon further review, that's pretty apparent. 
 
I scored big points in a trivia contest against music industry legends by knowing about him/Kingston Trio. Which struck me as odd, that they didn't know. Still didn't make it to the final round tho. It was rigged.

Plenty of laws appear to be doing exactly that, namely defining what is considered good or bad social behaviour (and especially how to punish the latter, or, in other cases, to prevent something from happening, e.g. forbidding marriages of certain people, i.e. racial or sexual minorities). That also has very little to do with financial issues, and everything with social issues (driven from one ideological mainstream view, e.g. Christianism or nativism).

American liberals of the era rarely challenged the basic assumption on which their worldview hinged: that the purpose of the modern state was to inhibit and constrain — not advance or sustain — corporate interests. As is evident from Bell’s contemporaneous declaration that the balance of powers between private enterprise and public policy signaled nothing short of an “end of ideology,” American liberals in the early 1960s were so utterly convinced of the diverging interests of state and capital that they could not even fathom that this assumption was ideological in itself.

To men such as Arthur Schlesinger, an archliberal in both the White House and his own historical writings, it was sheer common sense to note that “liberalism in America has been ordinarily the movement on the part of other sections to restrain the power of the business community.” In the early 1960s, American historians — led by the likes of Oscar Handlin, Louis Hartz and Richard Hofstadter — echoed Schlesinger’s sentiment. American historians, that is, save for a young Gabriel Kolko. (...)



 
Just as Conservatives screw themselves in worrying about social issues, so have the Liberals.

Gabriel Kolko’s Unfinished Revolution
Kolko reshaped the way we think about how the state protects and advances capitalist interests.

Gabriel Kolko, historian and socialist, died last month in his home in Amsterdam. He was 81.

When Kolko’s The Triumph of Conservatism appeared on the scene in 1963, it was not only a book of history but heresy. This was the era in which American liberalism reigned supreme, and social commentators such as Daniel Bell confidently assured the public that the formula for sustained economic prosperity and political freedom had been uncovered in the form of a capitalist system kept in check by a powerful and centralized regulatory government.

Can capitalism prevent catastrophic climate change? | International Socialist Review #books

It is now too late to stop global warming. Even if greenhouse gas production stopped today, two centuries of emissions will remain in the atmosphere for hundreds of years. The average temperature of Earth’s atmosphere and oceans will rise, with increasingly severe effects on climate and weather, no matter what we do.

If emissions continue at today’s levels, catastrophic climate change is inevitable. At the very least, large parts of the world will be uninhabitable, and conditions in the rest will be harsher than humans have ever experienced. The survival of our species, and of the millions of animal and plant species we share this world with, is at stake. 

So the critical issue today is whether emissions can be reduced deeply enough and quickly enough to limit the damage. Given the uncertainties of climate science, including the unpredictability of qualitative “tipping points” that may radically accelerate the rate of change, we can’t know just how deep or how quick the reductions must be—but most scientists agree that cuts must start now, and emissions must be close to zero by midcentury.

Roughly speaking, there are four schools of thought about how to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and avert climate catastrophe. The consumer behavior school wants us to travel less, recycle more, eat locally-grown food, and have fewer babies. The economic reform school proposes taxes, trading schemes, and sometimes regulations. The technology substitution school calls for new kinds of equipment. And the social change school advocates changes in the dominant system of producing and distributing material goods.

While an increasing number of environmentalists see a need for radical social change, most Greens continue to hope that quick solutions can be implemented without substantial social, economic, or institutional changes—which in practice means reforms that don’t require challenging the capitalist system that got us into this mess in the first place. Carbon taxes, emission trading, renewable energy subsidies, CO2 capture and storage, energy efficiency, population control—these and many more proposals seek to reduce greenhouse gases while leaving capitalism essentially intact.

Two recent books challenge the claim that a capitalist economy can be a green economy, exposing the insuperable obstacles that stand in the way of market-based capitalist solutions to the climate crisis. (...)

As I understand it, the SSD is strictly a download repository; doesn't accept anything you don't deliberately download. I've never seen anything on mine except stuff I put there. The couple of times I have noticed buggy/slow behavior rebooting the thing fixed it right up.
