Re: Peter's Faulty Analogy

Wonderment,

The two cases are the same only if you evaluate them from an exclusively utilitarian perspective. And human morality is not simply an exercise in utility maximization. To illustrate,...

Peter's Faulty Analogy

Not to rain on Peter's parade, but the reason people don't feel the same urgency to help a dieing child across the globe as they do a child in a pond is because the responsibility for taking action...

Re: Two over Par

Gwlaw,

I think you're a bit confussed (not surprising if you're using CAMERA as your principle source for information about Israel). The intent of UNSC Resolution 242 was to maintain the...

Russert Replacement

I know it's as likely a Bush 3rd term, but Amy Goodman (http://www.democracynow.org) has to be one of the best (and most underappreciated) journalists in the nation. Though I hope she'd be able to...

Re: Scarlett Johansson Edition

So Joel Cairo not only has a conflict of interest, but evidently is also a sleeper agent planted by the Chinese to take out Bob Wright in order that Mickey can ascend to the top of the Bloggingheads...

Re: Blog re-cap?

Duoist, 'character' as defined by conservatives is so intentionally vague that it's impossible measure or compare it between candidates. What does 'character' even mean? Is it the same as morality?...

Re: The Southern Partisan is not a racist publication

I would like to ask Conn the same thing about Jeremiah Wright. Can he or you or anyone else point any evidence of his being a 'raving racist'? I know it's probably just received wisdom at this point...

Re: Most Democratic Party economists know the truth concerning free trade

Dave, you're right about the free trade consensus among economists. However, what's left out of your econ 101 lecture is that the losers from trade are clearly identifiable and thus easy to empathize...

McArdle Goodwins the Diavlog

I think we know who lost her argument. How did the conversation get from the News Media's role in society to the Nuremberg trials? Granted, McArdle didn't mention Hitler by name although she came...

Re: Science Saturday: Beauty in Science

"Pro-Israel"

So Michael Goldfarb starts the discussion on Israel by using the tired framework where in "pro-Israel" means aligning oneself with the most intransigent rightwing elements of Israeli society. He...

The Enemy

Re: "You Think You Know Something?"

No, it's not moral reductionism to condemn criminals. Sending them to prison is, by definition, a form on condemnation and something I think almost all "liberals" agree is appropriate under the right...

"You Think You Know Something?"

Wow. This discussion will probably go down in history, right next to the infamous Althouse/Franke-Ruta confrontation, as one of the most contentious diavlogs in Bloggingheads history.

But knowing...

Re: Racism Without Racists

Re: The Bobs Show

What exactly is a "left leaning economist?" One who is pro-choice and doesn't hate gays? I just find it so weird the way people try to catagorize economists as left/right. I've never heard of liberal...

Nice weasle words there. "Were interpreted to mean". The fact is, he didn't say...
