Two French civilians say a prayer as they lay flowers on a fallen American soldier near the city of Cerentan in 1944 France. This picture says a lot about the respect and appreciation the allies had for each other, something the axis lacked.

A Libertarian Case for Net Neutrality
As a libertarian you may be uneasy with the concept of net neutrality. Like me, you feel inexplicably drawn to this neutrality but feel guilty for it. You think to yourself, “I’m a free-market libertarian, by God! Regulation is wrong! Why is my instinct betraying me?” It’s because we don’t live in perfect world. We live in an economy that is far from free and is infested with government regulations and corporate manipulation. The internet service industry is a picturesque example of this.
Ancient Fort of Chittorgarh
[repost img=”http://blog.benspera.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/Benteng-Chittorgarh-India-800×533.jpg” title=”Ancient Fort of Chittorgarh” desc=”The city of Chittaurgarh (Chittor) is located on the banks of river Gambhiri and Berach, in western India. Historically, it is considered that Chittor was built by the Maurya dynasty in the 7th century AD. The fort is surrounded by a circular wall which has seven huge gates before one can enter inside the main fort area. Chittor was one of the most contested seats of power in India with probably some of the most “glorious” battles being fought over its possession. By tradition, it remained the Mewar capital for 834 years.” url=”http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chittorgarh”]
