anyone else really fucking hate this guy? also what is it with 3rd rate psychologists suddenly becoming revered as these gurus because they tell basement dwellers basic fucking common sense wrapped up in these political messages that are exactly what they want to hear?

Ah so someone is a pseudointellecial because they something that resonates with a group of people you don't like. What if he is helping them become better people? do you want them to be basement dwellers forever or do you wish them success? So you have a problem with them finding happiness?

Hey man what's your issue with Steven Pinker?
>>3rd rate psychologists
Steve Pinker is a lot bigger deal than that in psychology. Maybe you don't know the temperature of the water among psychologists? He's also quite good on a technical level, he has put out a lot of research, he does the work, he just also makes lots of money off writing books to the general public about it. Yeah, he is one of the last dying relics of the flower child generation of psychology, but is that the only reason you hate him?
>> suddenly
He has been writing science books targeted at the general public for almost 30 years. Is that really sudden to you?

What is the inciting incident of making this post? What did Pinker do to get you so riled up about him? Do you actually disagree with any of his ideas or just don't like that he talks publicly about them?

Pinker's primary function is to say "everything is actually good m'kay" and deflect all criticism of current systems of power which is why his primary crowd is rich liberals and fiscal conservatives. Both of those groups happen to control most of the media bandwidth so his ideas get flaunted all over the place with little or no criticism. If you're someone who's upset with the way the world is turning, say an environmentalist, then Pinker is just one of many condescending dumb asses who chide you with a multimillion dollar speakerphone and misconstrued data.

To build my the thesis in far more explicit terms. Steven Pinker is somewhere between Bill Clinton and Sheldon Adelson in appearances on Epstein's flight logs.

I generally lean towards more systemic explanations of our society but sometimes its just more blatant. Pinker preaches that the world is great and nothing should change because he was regularly flying to an island of teenage sex slaves.

more of a scientism absolutist. I'd take Feyerabend over him anyday, and I'm far from an anarchist.
