I haven’t been posting very much this week. To those of you that care, I apologize; I’ve been working on editing, formatting and writing new chapters for the book I’m trying to get done by the end of this year. Between an insane work schedule and the amount of effort I’ve been pouring into this book, I haven’t had time to even feed or bathe myself properly (gross, I know).
Anyway, there was this little gem I found the other day, and I had to carve out some extra time to share it with you guys. Lately Chris Cantwell has been worrying himself more with how different genetic and cultural factors are not conducive to freedom as opposed to sticking to his “thin” libertarian brutalism, which he used to be so well-known for. Basically, he’s gone “thick-right” to the same degree as those that have gone “thick-left” in the libertarian movement.
One of the interesting results of this move is how quickly and effectively he resorts to tearing apart left-libertarians, even as compared to before. Today’s Daily Resource Suggestion is this video in which he argues with CopBlock, an organization that used to be a police accountability group that is now a Black Lives Matter soapbox.
I don’t agree with everything Cantwell says, I never have. but he is definitely in the top three celebritarians as far as rational consistency, epistemic rectitude, and actually researching the subjects they discuss.
