One Response to Potpourri

    From Brennan’s webpage: “if they do vote, they must vote well—on the basis of sound moral and empirical beliefs in order to promote the common good….Voters should vote for the common interest rather than for narrow self-interest.”

    Also: “I argue that under some conditions there is nothing morally wrong with buying and selling votes.”

    Seriously? Either Brennan is supremely naive and misguided or he wishes to dismantle democratic government.

    Anyway, this is inspiring me to write a book: “Don’t Publish! Why Bad Theorists Have a Moral Obligation Not to Write Shitty Philosophy”.
