Re: Matt Yglesias: Creating Jobs by Cutting Wages

Well, some people say they're not actually Paul's letters.

But in any case, you were overstating what most people said which wasn't that Paul's newsletters negate the positive aspects of Paul, but...

Re: Matt Yglesias: Creating Jobs by Cutting Wages

They're deficient, by definition, in very specific areas if they are correctly diagnosed. They're not morally inferior, but it's very difficult for me to see how one can claim both that 1) someone's...

Re: Matt Yglesias: Creating Jobs by Cutting Wages

I am not on a team. I don't believe we can carve people up and pretend that the parts of them we don't like don't exist. Others differ. That's fine.

As for "technical". Yes. I was being technical...

Re: LOL

When did people become such wilting flowers? Is a condition of free speech that no one criticize the speech or have their own opinions?

It's hard to imagine some left-wing politically correct...

Re: LOL

Well, thanks for providing an example which probably illustrates why we are likely to disagree about how widespread false allegations of racism are. First of all, most people are reporting what he...

Re: LOL

I am saying that aside from whether claiming a black friend is the right thing to do, is not practical in terms of the stated goal of convincing people that one isn't a racist. If someone is...

Re: Matt Yglesias: Creating Jobs by Cutting Wages

They'd be in the middle of Haidt's curves. Somewhat lower in care and fairness than liberals and somewhat higher than conservatives. Somewhat lower in authority and ingroup and purity than...

Re: Matt Yglesias: Creating Jobs by Cutting Wages

Well, the methods are not at all unusual for social science. But then Sheldon Cooper likes to say "social science is mainly hokum" so YMMV.

As to the above, I have trouble getting either. When you...

Re: An Important Note to Our Valued Commenters from Bob

What an odd conclusion. It's simply a way of expressing onesself. The person who gets the most votes of approval is the most popular. That matters to some people, apparently.

Re: Matt Yglesias: Creating Jobs by Cutting Wages

Haidt's fairness principle is almost entirely some combination of procedural fairness and/or reciprocity. Procedural fairness is exactly what libertarians state that they value relative to similarity...

Re: Matt Yglesias: Creating Jobs by Cutting Wages

I don't see how deficient isn't a value judgment. It's at least an evaluative statement. Different would be a non-evaluative statement. One can note that some people have brown eyes and some have...

Re: Matt Yglesias: Creating Jobs by Cutting Wages

Well, if we are actualy trying to understand the phenomenon, an extreme (in my view) focus on InGroup would make it easier to square Care and Fairness with the Nazi regime. "Others" only count, after...

Re: Matt Yglesias: Creating Jobs by Cutting Wages

Weren't you just upset with me for inferring that you were claiming that the liberal version, described by Haidt, was deficient? I am honestly trying to figure out how the above isn't what I inferred...

Re: LOL

I don't recall such a quote from this forum.

I also don't see why asking for evidence is such a horrible thing, or (if we decide that such a charge is supposed to be answered by evidence, who is...

Re: LOL

Well, it's kind of old ground, isn't it?

These days, most people accused of racism aren't being accused of being violent racists; they're being accused of believing a given race is inferior and/or...

Re: LOL

Disagree. and if you like, state why you think it isn't true. I wouldn't typically go on to the second part, although if I was feeling frisky I might ask the accuser to provide evidence.

Sure including the opinion that "some of my best friends are black" is a silly thing to say in response to an accusation of racism.

Re: Matt Yglesias: Creating Jobs by Cutting Wages

But you are making some inferences here. First, there's no particular a priori reason to assume that the best moral calculus would weight all virtues equally.

In particular, I am skeptical as to...
