I just watched this AMAZING BloggingheadsTV episode with Will Wilkinson. It’s long, but it’s really challenging. I think his idea about a new political philosophy is great. I’m in the process of trying to work of my political philosophy- blending a strong belief in international aid, regulation of dangerous industries (including via a carbon tax), yet frustration with a progressive taxation scheme that encourages cheating. Will Wilkinson’s attempts to try to construct a political philosphy are really fascinating, and resonate. Obviously, his frustrations and conflicting interests are far more complex than mine, but I think he’s doing a good thing.
