Optimism for the future from the Wizard.

Can YouTube’s “Skeptic Community” put aside the memes and extend an olive branch to the “social justice warriors?”  Can a feminist like Laci Green reconcile with a skeptical humanist like Sargon of Akkad?  Actually, that already happened at VidCon 2017:

“A good number of SJW’s, for instance, as stupid as they may be, are not necessarily the evil manipulative creatures that say Anita Sarkeesian, Zoe Quin, or Brianna Wu is.  To them, their ideologies and their notions are genuinely good.  They’re trying to do good for the world and make it a better place, even if the actual practice and function of their ideas much like communism would result in widespread suffering and abject failure.  This being the case though, why not take on those arguments more directly?  Why not, instead of showing everyone how clever we can be, show them how smart we really are?  Because there’s a whole lot of batshit, dumb-fuckery out there to be combated by smarter people and the better angels of our nature can shine through if we let them (Nick Goroff a.k.a. the Wizard of Cause, 2017).”

    1. I have not experimented with the WordPress plug-ins much at all, but I should. There are probably a few things to greatly improve both my blogs.
