It's the blind squirrel effect. They cheer when he finds a nut, but ignore the pile of rocks collected. And in this particular case, I'm sure there are points where I find him at least close to the mark as well, but I be they are different points that Beaker has. So we don't really even know when to cheer the squirrel except when we agree with his outcome.

Setting aside preconcieved notions about personalities, this is an interesting discussion about,
among other relevant topics, spirituality and ways to overcome the mounting challenges facing our world. I try to look and listen beyond crippled or trivialized intellectual arguments to what is actually being said. If it wasn't  meaningful in a constructive and/or positive way I probably wouldn't venture the scorn or disrespect of deficit interests. Disagreement with ideas is one thing. I don't always know what the other is but I certainly know the difference.

I decided to watch/listen to the entire interview, as I was doing other desk work - just finished all  46:18 of it.  I find his commentary weakly argued and largely incoherent - prime example: the hot garbage from 30:49 to 33:03.  

Much of the interview was Brand defending himself against various accusations. 

And I doubt he's smarter than you.

Brand's interview with Tucker keeps showing up in my newsfeed today.  Okay.
Brand: We're being prepped for a hot war with Russia.
Me: That war is not happening, for many reasons.

However, there's a non-zero chance a hot war with China could break out.  IMO, of course.

edit: This just appeared in my newsfeed. Totally coincidental, of course.

Man, it’s like 6th grade in here.
Reminder: all this started because I don’t like Brand and Carlson and said so. Then came the insults.

I’m out. Recess.

One summer many decades ago when I was in my early 30s I played on a softball team. On our team were twin brothers. During one game one of the brothers made some kind of error or baserunning mistake, I don't remember exactly what, and his brother yelled out from the bench, "YOU ASSHOLE!" Later in the game when one of them stepped up to the plate to take his turn at bat, someone called out from the stands, "Are you the asshole?"

So you're both proctologists after all.  Hanging out where the sun don't shine explains your pale pallors.  At least now I know who to turn to when the shit hits the fan.  To each they're own.
