The Other Side is Not Dumb
My mad-lefty, biological brother posted this on Facebook. Me, and his mad lefty buddy with whom I did the book exchange, and a couple others posted wildly approbational comments. It's a good and short piece.
The "Other Side" Is Not Dumb
Last time I played that game, I -- of course -- talked about "Fight Club." But . . . oh, maybe I should not have mentioned that.
I went searching for a Megan McArdle piece which said similar things and influenced me deeply. My Google-Fu® chops were not up to the challenge, but she also asked how many of your posts are virtue-signalling and tribal to the point where they undermine persuasion.
It's a good piece. McArdle's was, of course, better. But she's not a stupid lefty.Politics Posted by John Kranz at June 30, 2016 2:45 PM
