Why Sam

Given that I complain endlessly about Sam Harris, some people have asked why I still listen to him. This podcast episode is an example of why. (But even in this powerful episode, Sam has to go on a digression where he rants that no one should talk about race, with the implication, as always, that only his straight, white, male perspective is "rational." <sigh>)

Side note: I updated my previous post to clarify that the quotes listed were from 1970.
