Noted in India

Savitri Era Political Action by Tusa N. Mohapatra, India blog (here) links a post to Lost legacy: “Adam Smith’s important message: we serve our self interests best by serving the self-interests of others”

Comment
I am pleased that other Blogs find interesting material among Lost Legacy posts and I am happy to see them disseminate ideas expressed here to their readers when they provide a link for their readers to connect to read the original articles..

Recently, I have noticed more economics, politics and moral philosophy Blogs in the Indian sub-continent posting materials from Western sources. This is encouraging.

I am not concerned with the politcs and ‘nature’ of these host blogs. In the exchange of ideas, concepts, views on history, and such like, such activity is good in its own right.

Thanks for locating and mentioning. That you pursue the ASLL mission so doggedly is really inspiring.

Blogland is diverse. Many Blogs are new to readers who search for particular subjects, such as I do on Adam Smith.

I read what is written and judge the material against what I know about Adam Smith and economics. I do not often know anything about the Blog's authors affiliations, political, religious, irreligious, philosophical or other connections.

The free exchange of opinions, ideas, research, and applications comes before an audit of the authors' 'worthiness', life stories, past views, context, or background.

As often stated I only comment on politics in the country where I vote (Scotland); I do not mock the personas of others or what they believe in. Their views on Adam Smith, the use they make of them, their errors and ommissions are relevant to Lost Legacy.

This what I mean by these exchanges being 'good in their own right'.
