“If you’ve ever heard of George Mason University economist Robin Hanson, there’s a good chance it was because he wrote something creepy. Over the years, the libertarian-leaning professor has become notorious in certain circles for his odd and disconcerting dips into socio-sexual commentary; he once mused on his blog, for instance, about whether women who suffered a “gentle, silent rape” were really worse off than men who experienced infidelity. Last week, Hanson was back at it again. In a post that left many readers agog, he decided to use a heinous incident of misogynistic violence as an opportunity to contemplate the concept of “redistributing” sex to men who have trouble getting laid.”

This date in 1970 four university students were killed in an Ohio National Guard “riot”, a mistake on Kent State University campus.
I do not remember it as any different than the police “riots in Chicago during the democratic convention. Others see differently.
Like all things about Vietnam Kent State was a senseless tragedy. six students including the Jackson event along with 58000 US service men and women!
If you were aware at that time you remember!
