514: Honest Criticism

"Charles Murray, go away! Racist! Sexist! Anti-gay!"

Sam Harris interviewed Charles Murray for his podcast. KMO tried to generate some discussion of that podcast episode on the Friends of the C-Realm group. The resulting discussion proved frustrating, as the most dedicated participants were focused on discrediting Murray and showed little willingness to engage with the issues that Harris and Murray discussed. Author and publisher Douglas Lain admits that Murray's talking points make him angry, but Doug is willing to resist the impulse to lead with ad hominem and actually delve into Murray's arguments. His effort at honest criticism is most appreciated.

In this episode of the C-Realm Podcast, KMO tries to highlight what he finds useful in Murray's presentation and Doug articulates why Murray's arguments are built on shaky foundations. The conversation concludes in C-Realm Vault podcast #246.
