About the author

Matt is the author, co-author, secondary-author, ghost-author, and non-author of articles, speeches, book chapters, and even entire books! The most recent is his blockbuster The Accidental Activist, which Amazon claims is by his wife Anne Green. So it goes. Currently, he is President of One Step for Animals; previously, he was shitcanned from so many nonprofits that we can’t list them all here. Before Matt’s unfortunate encounter with activism, he was an aerospace engineer who wanted to work for NASA (to impress Carl Sagan). His hobbies include photography, almost dying, and {REDACTED}. He lives in Tucson with Anne, along with no dogs, no cats, no guinea pigs, and only the occasional snake or scorpion.

The Epitome of Straight White Male Privilege

Sam Harris on Recode / Decode:

Kara: Although, I have to say, it’s not identity politics to understand why people come to things because of things that have happened to them, right? 
Sam: Yeah. But then those people have to get over those things to have a rational conversation.

He does realize he was being recorded, right? Just get over it? Really?

Read the whole thing. No more need for concern for civil rights, this isn't the 1960s, etc. Amazing.
