  • I can't say that I agreed with everything in there, but it was a great article. Thanks for the link!

  • I'm not even of the opinion that his view is particularly indefensible. Except the big part where he says that this is why a large group of people choose what they choose.

    He's clearly wrong about that. Many of those people don't feel that way, and I'd wager that the vast majority don't. At least the vast majority of the ones that I've seen talking about it don't.

    For instance I look at the situation and I say to myself, If I'm ever in her position, I want people to admit that I'm dead, hold a decent fun

      He actually manages to misrepresent both sides. I think he's trying to play psychologist (or economist) and get at people's alleged underlying unspoken motivations. Whether or not those motivations are truly there and are truly as he describes is an interesting thought to ponder.
