We at Surprise Avocado are interested in just about everything. Particularly stimulating are issues relating to the Middle East, to the dangerous spread and correspondingly dangerous misperception and misinterpretation of Islamic extremism. We’re also into topics in political science and political economics: the uses and misuses of the free market, the limits and possibilities of government intervention, and the interplay of these questions with international development and politics. In addition, you’re likely to see snippets and articles making use of some more abstract philosophical ideas in political and analytical philosophy, as well as clarifications regarding some oft-misrepresented scientific topics. Also lots of other stuff.
