MacOS X: Lion-like spaces for Snow Leopard


1. Go to System Preferences and select «Expose & Spaces», enable spaces and create one row and four columns.
2. Go back to System Preferences, choose «Mouse» and disable «two fingers swipe to navigate».
3. Install MagicPrefs. Go to Swipes, set «two finger swipe left» to «Switch space right» and set «two finger swipe right» to «Switch space left» (natural -iPhone- scrolling :P).

Η Δανία επιβάλει φόρο στα φαγητά που περιέχουν υψηλή περιεκτικότητα σε λιπαρά, όπως βούτυρο, πίτσα, κρέας και γάλα… για το καλό των πολιτών. Το αποτέλεσμα ήταν να τρέξουν οι πολίτες στις υπεραγορές και να αδειάσουν τα ράφια που είχαν προϊόντα που μπορούν να διατηρηθούν στην κατάψυξη ώστε να έχουν αποθέματα. Το κακό είναι ότι οι Δανοί κατηγόρησαν την Κυβέρνηση ότι το κάνει για εισπρακτικούς λόγους λες και αν οι λόγοι της είναι αγαθοί έχει δικαίωμα να μας λέει τι πρέπει να τρώμε…

Ο Mises είχε προβλεψει ότι αν επιτρέψουμε στην Κυβερνήση να επεμβαίνει σε προσωπικά θέματα τότε ανοίγει το κουτί της Πανδώρας και καταλήγει να ρυθμίζει κάθε πτυχή της ζωής μας.

«As soon as we surrender the principle that the state should not interfere in any questions touching on the individual’s mode of life, we end by regulating and restricting the latter down to the smallest details.

It is an established fact that alcoholism, cocainism, and morphinism are deadly enemies of life, of health, and of the capacity for work and enjoyment; and a utilitarian must therefore consider them as vices. But this is far from demonstrating that the authorities must interpose to suppress these vices by commercial prohibitions, nor is it by any means evident that such intervention on the part of a government is really capable of suppressing them or that, even if this end could be attained, it might not therewith open up a Pandora’s box of other dangers, no less mischievous than alcoholism and morphinism. . . . For if the majority of citizens is, in principle, conceded the right to impose its way of life upon a minority, it is impossible to stop at prohibitions against indulgences, in alcohol, morphine, and cocaine, and similar poisons. Why should not what is valid for these poisons be valid also for nicotine, caffeine, and the like? Why should not the state generally prescribe which foods may be indulged in and which must be avoided because they are injurious? . . . More harmful still than all these pleasures, many will say, is the reading of evil literature.

Freedom is indivisible. As soon as one starts to restrict it, one enters upon a decline on which it is difficult to stop.» -Mises
