Stand Up!

Suppose you’re the member of the Brave Position Club. Robin Hanson:

I suppose I can appreciate that some folks want to signal they don’t fear social retribution, though I suspect many interpret them as signaling that they have no political or managerial ambitions.

Dr. Hanson understands. It’s better never to say what’s on your mind, because people are judged for what’s on their mind, rather than what they do. Would that people could consider different ideas and opinions without branding themselves. Hate the sin, not the sinner, etc. It’s all signaling. What, people believe you’re going to do what you say you will?

Christians aren’t Christianity, etc.

Remember: they’re going to kill you anyway.
