The Nassim Taleb thread

First he attacks Snowden, and now he comes after Assange:


This guy's stupidity is nothing short of monumental and it makes my blood boil. His question is completely disingenuous and a high school student can imagine why Assange or Snowden criticize the West but not others.

Taleb has morphed from wanna-be quasi-philosopher to a wanna-be political activist in an effort to stay relevant. It's in almost everything he's written since Covid-19. However he obviously doesn't know anything about politics, political theory, policy, or history etc.

He's done a great job proving he's fueled by nothing more than agenda but also hate. The guy's a liar and a snake.

Sadly I have to agree completely. He has some useful points and assertions, or at least he had some, but now he's completely gone off the rails and worships at the altar of globohomo. He knows who butters his bread and committed to remaining in their good graces.

This "contrarian outsider" has for years and years been invited to lecture at Google and other top globalist institutions, and very much enjoys being the cool snarky bad boy of intellectual circles, while never actually saying anything really controversial. He's constantly featured in mainstream publications, so he's very much got SKIN IN THE GAME to stay a good globohomo cuck.

Because his range of acceptable topics to criticize and be snarky about has increasingly dwindled, rather than point out censorship and advocate true free speech, he instead is lashing out at the few true dissident thinkers out there, and actual contrarian topics. This lets him still be "edgy" while remaining in the good graces of globohomo - for now.

COVID would have been a perfect opportunity for this phagget to shine and actually be contrarian on this topic, even if only a few aspects of this nightmare. Instead he's focusing on oppressed political dissidents.

What a joke.
