The New Square Left

I think that this is the problem Frum is talking about. This kind of "social conservatism" exists, but it's now on the left.

I've only heard stories about what it was like when Brink and David...

Re: Milieu

In seriousness, though, this episode is a model for how to take horserace-style news hooks and use them as jumping off points into more substantive discussions of underlying issues. Well done.

Re: Special Wedding Bells Edition

We don't want flying cars. They always come with murderous androids.

And, in Blade Runner at least, some serious climate change.

Re: The Good Behavior Game

While I sympathize somewhat, this attitude is probably counterproductive.

MacDonald probably feels she has to keep repeating her talking points rather than engaging in a substantive discussion...

Re: I think

At a certain level, "rational" just means "responds to incentives that we can explain." As behavioral and neurological methods expand economics' explanatory power, the meaning of "rational" expands.

Hartford and the Pangloss Temptation

There's a similar problem with the definition of "adaptation" in biology, and a constant temptation to resort to lazy, untestable just-so stories. Still, it's clear that human behavior lies...

Jonah Goldberg (http://bloggingheads.tv/diavlogs/8244?in=00:11:30&out=00:12:20).

Re: Reset

My argument has been and remains that

1. This is a non-serious project.
2. You can tell without reading the book.

Goldberg just does argue a). That's what the whole book is about. If b) is...

Re: The Future of the Republican and Democratic Parties

Agree that this was a remarkably good episode.

For me it seems to come down to which constituency the party can afford to alienate in order...

Re: The Future of the Republican and Democratic Parties

I dunno, JM. How much of the much-vaunted Republican crackup is just a function of an idiosyncratic candidate field? If Thompson had proved to be a more effective campaigner we probably wouldn't be...
