Re: Values Added: Winter Is Coming (Michelle Goldberg & Conn Carroll)

It's obnoxious. A little empathy for the viewer/listener would help. I turned it off.

Re: Live From the West Bank (Robert Wright & Younes Arar)

As a non-Jew, I find this genetic element curious, especially given how many self-described Jews do not believe in god. I know it's in the Mishnah, but lots of old works are now taken less...

Re: Starting a Panic (David Corn & James Pinkerton)

David got very excited about a rather innocuous phrasing: jobs vs. 'net' jobs. It's not a profound 'gotcha.' I really doubt thoughtful people don't know the difference, even though David himself...

Re: Values Added: Fawning Edition (Sarah Posner & Michael B. Dougherty)

I agree he didn't say those things. My poorly made point was that, I don't see why he's a conservative if he is so sympathetic to Sarah's view of conservatism.

Re: Values Added: Fawning Edition (Sarah Posner & Michael B. Dougherty)

He can believe in whatever he wants, I just can't empathize. I mean, if you believe strongly in higher taxes (especially on the rich), more government spending on everything but the military, more...

Re: Values Added: Fawning Edition (Sarah Posner & Michael B. Dougherty)

There's nothing strange about thinking your intellectual opponents have seriously flawed assumptions or hidden motives, it's just hard to think you believe that about a group you identify with. It's...

Re: Values Added: Fawning Edition (Sarah Posner & Michael B. Dougherty)

Michael must have some singular conservative issue he finds very important, because in general he agrees with Sarah that Republicans are irrational if not stupid hypocrites.

Cornell West a Genius?

I agree West is successful--Princeton prof, relatively famous, but I'm unaware of any insight he's generated that's very profound. It sound more like Jeff loves his image, his mushy gestalt.

Re: Gould wrong, Horgan Goes to Dark Side

7 wouldn't be too noticeable, but consider Aborigine IQ ~ 62, Ashkenazi Jews ~ 112. If that's true, and I think it is, it's important.

Gould wrong, Horgan Goes to Dark Side

Gould's critique of the IQ literature hasn't held up. His argument that IQ is a 'reified' thing without substance is not accepted by most psychologists, it remains an important variable in...

Re: It's all about the team

It's narcissistic because real intellectuals discuss ideas, as opposed to simply assuming their politics are right and then discuss how events help or hurt your cause.

It's all about the team

How to Stop Stereotypes

This reminded me of a Native American activist who stated the two main problems for his community was 1) alcoholism and 2) the stereotype that Native Americans were alcoholics. These guys don't seem...

Details Important

When an issue involving allegations of racism are at issue, the details do not matter to most people, which is why this issue is so frustrating to many who learn the details. People like Sewer are...

MMMan update

Given the anti-rational rebuttles of my assertion by BJkeefe and others, I'll be brief, as reason with such people is pointless. But readers should know my assertions are not fringe, they are facts...

Mismeasure of Man

The Mismeasure of Man is used to refute the fact of human biodiversity via argument by authority. Gould's 1980 book spent most of his time finding fault with the motives and methods of research...

Re: BloggingHearts (Spencer Ackerman & Annie Lowrey)

Generous with other people's money

I suggest Mike's bank tell him they really need his money, and he can't access it until he gets a judge reviewing Mike's documentation when he applied for his savings account.

Why not just have...

Obfuscation not Rigor

The attempt to say Amy Wax's argument is invalid because it stereotypes blacks is an incoherent obfuscation. If 'black' doesn't mean anything, then why does Glenn study 'black' problems so much? ...

Re: WikiLeaks and Afghanistan (Spencer Ackerman & Joshua Foust)

Ackerman has not made a comment on his outrageous statements, let alone a sincere apology. I believe, like Sherrod(!) in redemption, but you have to first acknowledge your sin. He hoped that...
