Re: 'Roid Rage Edition (Robert Wright & Mickey Kaus)

Hilariously, a quick look at wikipedia tells us that Mickey/Bob's "displaying higher values" is actually "displaying higher value," for instance doing a magic trick (omega males can't do magic). No...

Maybe it's wrong, but god I love watching Mark uncomfortably have to play the right-winger.

Re: Intolerable Failure

Well that just makes you a Kaus-ian neoliberal, if true.

There's a point about this, and basically I need to say something that can seem very disingenuous. It is possible (in fact I take your word...

Re: Intolerable Failure

Time to put words and concepts to the anti-libertarian ranting, guys. Compare (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capitalism) and contrast (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corporatism). The two--capitalism...

Re: Hot World, Cold Cash

When faced with opposing arguments you say we don't know what's going on, and yet you seem convinced that something is being denied. How can we not know the consequences of global warming and yet...

How about that some people convince themselves it's not trolling when they do it?

Re: Politics and Who We Are

Note that as per the discussion on harm/symbolism, in the contentious Yglesias/Chait dialogue, what Chait meant when he said sometimes you have to take "morality" into account in foreign policy was...

Re: Politics and Who We Are

Say it with me: No crap.

I'm often much more interested in the political fight than the policies, so I should be on board here, but attempts by psychologists/philosophers/sociologists to dissect...

Re: Come for the Foreign Policy, Stay for the Sex

Re: The Week in Blog: Baby Please #dontgo

Re: Mickey and Edwards

You seem to have two points about why this is bad--puritanism and distraction. The second is made with extreme pomposity but has merit, even if I don't quite agree (though I'm sympathetic), but as to...

Re: The Week in Blog: Baby Please #dontgo

This would count as threadjacking if it weren't The Week In Blog, but we have all seen the latest in the Edwards scandal.
