A LOT of people owe Michael Lewis an apology

Nothing to do with the post

If this is correct and everyone with a claim against FTX will get at least 100 cents on the dollar, then everyone who slagged on Michael Lewis as "naive" and "credulous" owe him a huge apology. 

And every EA who went from licking SBF's boots to throwing him under the bus: I hope you feel ashamed. 

And everyone who was quick to condemn all effective altruism and/or utilitarianism based on the rush to judgment on SBF - I hope you, too, feel ashamed.

As you know from reading Losing, I'm not an EA or a utilitarian. Going forward, maybe we should react with some empathy and compassion
