Civilians Who Run Full-Page Ads in the New York Times (‘Common Sense’ John Haywood Edition)

The hardworking staff has no idea what this two-page spread in yesterday’s New York Times is all about.

Huh?

So we plugged John Haywood into the Googletron and here’s what popped up:

Haywood ran almost a dozen ads in the New Hampshire Sunday News during the 2012 Granite State presidential primary. Which got us to wondering: Is the Times spread a trial balloon for the 2016 race?

So we sent the following note to Mr. Haywood:

Dear Mr. Haywood,

I saw your two-page ad in yesterday’s New York Times and was impressed by 1) the amount of copy it contained and 2) the amount of money it must have cost. (I also wrote about it at www.campaignoutsider.com)

Just wondering: Is this a harbinger of a 2016 presidential run? The Times is a long way from the New Hampshire Sunday News, yeah?

Looking forward to your reply, I remain

Cordially yours,
John R. Carroll

We will, as always, keep you posted.

    I see your quote “No man but a blockhead every wrote except for money.” If you mean to defend writing and writers against the onslaut of for-profit driven, ad based media outlets, that’s good. But otherwise, to suggest that the only motive to write is money sounds odd. Nietzsche once said that the most sublime form of power is that of the philosopher, who writes for posterity after his death. This is the motive of many writers, having nothing to do with money. In fact, Western civilization is based on the motive of what Aristotle calls “the good man”, in contrast to “the good citizen”, who assumes the dominant values of his culture are absolutes. I have a web site at http://www.practicalphilosophy.net if you’d like to look.
