A Quote on Reaction, From An Intelligent Outsider

 “But every legitimate scientist disagrees with this particular Reactionary belief!” should be said with the same intonation as “But every legitimate archbishop disagrees with this particular heresy.”

–Scott S Alexander, in Reactionary Philosophy In An Enormous, Planet-Sized Nutshell

EDIT:

It’s not quite worthy of a whole other post directly succeeding this one, but this quote from the same source is also worth sharing:

There’s a saying I’ve heard in a lot of groups, which is something along the lines of “diversity is what unites us”. This is nice and memorable, but there are other groups where unity is what unites them, and they seem to be more, well, united.
