Re: Commenter Court: Humanitarian Intervention (Robert Wright & Wonderment)
I think Wonderment's opposition to the Libyan intervention is a sort of knee-jerk anti-militarism, without fully considering the costs and benefits of the intervention. He seems to have had two objections (opportunity costs and mission creep), which I found quite shallow. I suspect his real reason for opposing the intervention is that he has a principled objection to America's reliance on military power as a tool for problem solving, and I'd rather he stated this in the diavlog rather than relying on a few weak consequentialist objections.
Hopefully he can correct me if I misunderstood him anywhere!
