    Get Jan Helfeld on the phone. He’s the one who interviews politicians and reporters to show how stupid they are.

    It’s not really stupidity, he just employs the ‘socratic interview technique’ to catch people out who’ve never really considered their philosophical position beyond the snappy answer. 

    Now, we can say that someone who haven’t fully thought out the philosophical or intellectual position they hold are stupid, but that just seems rather disingenous. 

    A lot of my most hardcore anarchist philosophical standpoints are based purely on faith, first principle, and whatever sound clips I can gather of rothbard and etc, and so they are not truly ‘fully fleshed out’ until I’ve had time to actually read some real works on them. (And at the rate I’m going, I’m not gonna be done with HA for 2 months.)

    Then again, maybe I just don’t want people to call me stupid :)
