Re: Values Added: Terror in Norway (Michelle Goldberg & Michael B. Dougherty)

Everything is already ideological; and even if it weren't, declaring something non-ideological is an inherently ideological statement.

Re: Independents Day (Matt Welch & Nick Gillespie)

Vouchers don't work. Vouchers don't work. This question has been asked and answered empirically.

Re: Science Saturday: Indie Films, Drugs, and Free Will (John Horgan & George Johnson)

Actually, a family friend drowns; the brother dies offscreen, at the age of 19.

Re: How to Run the World (Robert Wright & Parag Khanna)

Khanna is the kind of person who terrifies me, because he not only thinks that he can project his preferences across the entire world, but that this should go without saying.

Re: Commenter Court: The Gauntlet Has Been Thrown (Robert Wright & Aryeh Cohen-Wade)

Your binary is wrong; I never expect to convince anyone of anything, and yet I'm certainly not preaching to any choir. I fight with everyone, always, whether they think we're on the same side or not....

Re: Rave On (Robert Wright & Ann Althouse)

9/10 cruise missile liberals agree-- bomb Libya.

Never change, Bob. You're so wonderfully predictable.

I have a crazy suggestion: put Daniel Larison on to forcefully make the case against war...

Re: Libya (Heather Hurlburt & Michael Cohen)

Whoops! Heather was wrong-- it's only US aircraft dropping bombs.

Re: The Long View (Matthew Yglesias & Noah Millman)

I just want to point out that there is 0 evidence (as in none) that what Michelle Rhee advocates is effective.

Re: The Great Stagnation (Matthew Yglesias & Tyler Cowen)

Just settling down to watch this now. I have to say-- I'm socialist, and I loved Dr. Cowen's book. Loved it. Obviously, we disagree on many things, but I thought it was such a smart, necessary, and...

Re: Science Saturday: Anthropological Perspective

Thanks for your correctives, boss.

Incidentally, I wasn't lying; I think that science deserves pride of place because it is the most demonstrably useful field of human knowledge. I'm not...

Re: Science Saturday: Anthropological Perspective

You're not really interested in pursuing this further; you're just interested in weighing in and then running away. Which is fine. It just reveals you to be a child.

Re: Science Saturday: Anthropological Perspective

It's hard for me to ignore my suspicion that scientists' dogged attachment to wearing the mantle of Really Truly True Truth is largely animated by personal and professional self-aggrandizement....

Re: Flugelhorn Edition (Conor Friedersdorf & Katherine Mangu-Ward)

Man, it's true, the process for firing teachers is long and complicated. Almost as if the output of their labor is notoriously, uniquely difficult to measure empirically!

Re: The $14.5 Trillion Dollar Question (Adam Serwer & Dan Drezner)

Dan Drezner's subservience to American power is remarkable, and embarrassing, but par for the course. What's truly pathetic about him is how deeply invested he is in being a member of the Church of...

Re: The Scandal of the Cross (Robert P. George & Cornel West)

This forum is filled with people who have never actually read anything by Dr. West, and have instead assimilated a prefabricated opinion of him. It isn't true, and never was, that Dr. West isn't a...
