Arguments against carbon dating

Which of the candidates in this election are millennarian? The left and right both critique Hillary the same way. Nobody cares what policies he’ll implement after he does this, because his campaign is more an expression of rage at these things than anything else.If Sanders were still in, I’d say fine, he qualifies. In my review of Singer on Marx, I wrote that: I’d always heard that Marx was long on condemnations of capitalism and short on blueprints for communism, and the couple of Marx’s works I read in college confirmed he really didn’t talk about that very much. I figured…he’d probably made a few vague plans, like “Oh, decisions will be made by a committee of workers,” and “Property will be held in common and consensus democracy will choose who gets what,” and felt like the rest was just details.

That’s the sort of error I could at least sympathize with, despite its horrendous consequences.

But in fact Marx was philosophically opposed, as a matter of principle, to any planning about the structure of communist governments or economies.

The millenarian longing for a world where all systems are destroyed, all problems are solved, and everything is permissible – that’s dangerous whether it comes from Puritans or Communists. All she wants to do is make little tweaks – a better tax policy here, a new foreign policy doctrine there. Hillary represents complete safety from millennialism. Trump’s policy ideas are mostly silly, but no one cares, because he’s not really running on policy.

These same conservatives have traced this longing through leftist history from Lenin through social justice. He’s running on making America great again, fighting the special interests, and defying the mainstream media.

And since the lesson of Brexit is that polls underestimate support for politically incorrect choices, this is going to be really close.

And I don’t know if I’d go so far as Scott Aaronson, who worries that he will one day live in a nuclear hellscape where his children ask him “Daddy, why didn’t you blog about Trump? But if some of my blogging on conservative issues has given me any political capital with potential Trump voters, then I this is where I want to spend it.
