- Robert Reich, normally my favorite liberal economist, does a fabulous job of propagandizing via tribalism. These guys are crazy/not mainstream...therefore you can safely ignore what they're saying. Oddly, his rhetoric is almost perfectly matched with that of the folks on the right calling Obama a non-mainstream socialist. Fascinating to look at from a tribal standpoint.
- Seth Roberts calls out Richard Levin, president of Yale, for a speech that is all tribe, and no substance. Quality insult of the piece: "It reads like something a college student would write in answer to an essay question when they hadn’t done the reading."
The virtue of excellence
