I'm a 26 year old from Lewes, Delaware and I can do a few things.
I also have some academic creds. I did a master's in 2011 in political thought and intellectual history at Cambridge. I wrote my dissertation on G.E. Moore and Wittgenstein. I went into the archives and looked at some exchanges they had concerning logic. I wrote about how these help us understand differences in Wittgenstein's thought on logic and language between his early and late periods. You can read an excerpt here.
Finally, I recently published an article on American federalism and the Wisconsin recall election in Renewal, a British journal for social democracy. That can be found here.
Feel free to take a look at the rest of my stuff:
I just started G.A. Cohen’s Self Ownership, Freedom, and Equality and the following struck me as particularly relevant given today’s news about Cyprus and the return of the spectre of financial crisis.
When aggregate wealth is increasing, the condition of those at the bottom of society, and in the world, can improve, even while the distance between them and the better off does not diminish. Where such improvement occurs (and it has occured, on a substantial scale, for many disadvantaged groups), egalitarian justice does not cease to demand equality, but that demand can seem shrill, even dangerous, if the worse off are steadily growing better off, even though they are not catching up with those above them. When, however, progress must give way to regress, when average material living standards must fall, then poor people and poor nations can no longer hope to approach the levels of amenity which are now enjoyed by the world's well off. Sharply falling average standards mean that settling for limitless improvement, instead of equality, ceases to be an option, and huge disparities of wealth become correspondingly more intolerable, from a moral point of view.
Cohen’s thought deserves a more serious...
