For Anarchy, State, and Utopia (1974) Nozick received a National Book Award in category Philosophy and Religion.[2] There, Nozick argues that only a minimal state "limited to the narrow functions of protection against force, theft, fraud, enforcement of contracts, and so on" could be justified without violating people's rights. For Nozick, a distribution of goods is just if brought about by free exchange among consenting adults from a just starting position, even if large inequalities subsequently emerge from the process. Nozick appealed to the Kantian idea that people should be treated as ends (what he termed 'separateness of persons'), not merely as a means to some other end.

One very notable pathology is a form of argument that, reduced to essence, runs like this: “Your refusal to acknowledge that you are guilty of {sin,racism,sexism, homophobia,oppression…} confirms that you are guilty of {sin,racism,sexism, homophobia,oppression…}.” I’ve been presented with enough instances of this recently that I’ve decided that it needs a name. I call this general style of argument “kafkatrapping”

There are a lot of interesting reasons but for the purpose of this article the one I would like to highlight is the baggage of X86 backwards compatibility. For the first time power efficiency became more important to the success of a CPU than speed. All of the transistors and all of the millions of lines of x86 code that Intel and Microsoft had invested in the PC became an obstacle to power efficiency. The most important aspect of Microsoft and Intel’s market hegemony became a liability over night.

Flawed land?
Flawed land?
“Marginal can be considered marginal for many reasons. The reason that it’s classed as that will have a large impact on whether or not it’s all feasible to bring it into annual grain production,” says Lemke. Sandy soils are more likely to leach nutrients such as soil organic nitrogen. Sandy soils and sloping land are also “particularly fragile in terms of soil structure and erosion risks and so on,” Lemke adds. Steep land and sandy soils are drought-prone. Native prairie in southwestern Saskatchewan also has moisture limitations.
