There is a trouble abrewing on the libertarian front.
Or… maybe not trouble per se, maybe it’s just a guy thing. Seems only yesterday it was Sam Harris profiling his guns. Or something.
Ok, so here goes.
First Ophelia got upset with Michael. I can sympathize. Even if he was just making an observation… it was kinda a dumb thing to say.
Starting to sound familiar? Oh boy. Of course, there is more, but…meh.
Did I mention Sam Harris? Well Shermer is also playing at the ethics game, and Massimo is having none of it. I agree with Massimo. Read his blog, it is good.
Now, I have to say, the whole ‘war on’ stuff annoys me. It is silly rhetoric. But I do think there is a point to be made that both left and right can be scientifically challenged. Just in different ways.
We don’t have to agree on everything… rational people can disagree and should be able to do so… rationally.
