Cowen and Pinker: Two Moments | askblog

I would define the problem as bad ideas becoming fashionable among intellectual elites. A big part of the problem is that there is not a good feedback mechanism between the bad ideas and their consequences. The people who proclaim their allegiance to socialism do not have to live in Venezuela. They do not even have to live in Denmark. They get to impose regulations on others’ lifestyles, while reducing regulations that might impinge on their own.
