I have no idea who wrote the headline for this piece—the title I borrow for this post—, but they didn’t read the article. I was wondering what educated person in the past 10 to 20 years still believes in the perfectly rational actor? The larger question…

Not really, but… This is a short video I hacked pulled together the last couple days. I guess I need to focus on getting them shorter. It’s a commentary on the various flavours of normative ethics. To be fair, the first 30 seconds is a snippet of a song I…
