520: Speech, tolerance and open debates, with Mark Oppenheimer (Part 2)

In this Part 2 with Mark Oppenheimer, recorded later after both had listened back to their first conversation, Mark and Bart return to take the earlier convo in a practical direction.

Including: Facebook versus Letter to the Editor, steel-manning, don’t act in ways you wouldn’t let your kids act, diversity including identity and ideology, features of the ‘new puritanism’, the importance of hearing from the young and old, keeping kids off social media, thoughts on how people with privilege should engage with people from oppressed groups, allowing people to care about different things, progress can be made with compassion for what is lost in the process, how sometimes people trying to change the world are cruel to those right next to them, how we may be living in the most humorless time in American history, and the importance of being committed to something.
