On Stands Now

Calliope, February 2013.The theme of February’s Calliope is dictators and tyrants throughout history: men like Peisistratos of Athens, Shi Huangdi of China, and of course, Julius Caesar of Rome.

There’s also a fun imaginary debate between Hobbes, Locke, and Rousseau about what government students should choose if the adults vanish from their school, leaving them in a state of nature (the pig’s head was unavailable for comment).

I have a feature about modern dictators, some of whom are still kicking and some — like Muammar Qaddafi — who are not.

A one-year, nine-issue subscription to Calliope is available at Amazon.
