Here is Peter Boettke, on the “outsider” status of Bernie Sanders:
Unpopular opinion — after watching Bernie Sanders on Meet the Press earlier today I am pretty sure he is as insincere and cynical as the worst of the DC political establishment. He is in fact a master agnotologist (sower of confusion on purpose to dupe ones audience) with his attacks on intellectual and political opposition. I cannot believe he generated youth excitement with his message. He has been in political power his entire adult life, why is he viewed as an outsider? Outsider to what we must ask.
Robin Hanson probably doesn’t care about getting invited to your dinner party either.
Dinner with Freddie would be fun.
