Starwars sends the wrong message, I’m afraid

I hate relativism. Can’t we just hate the terrorist in peace with having to consider their POV? Geez.

That reminds me. Professor DeLong wrote a post the other day, a “non-socratic dialog”, that got me wondering about:

– the Pareto frontier

– the social welfare function, which can take forms that are distribution neutral or not (which makes me wonder about the conclusion of the dialog) I’m not sure if this will be much help.

– what the hell is argmax

– and why the profs post relates to above… why is making a claim to be neutral on distribution a position of relativism?
