Quotable (#5)

Scott Alexander’s extended argument on the awesome power of niceness ends in a tangle of in-jokes (but funny ones):

Jacqueline Carey and Mencius Moldbug are both wiser than Arthur Chu.

Carey portrays liberalism as Elua, a terrifying unspeakable Elder God who is fundamentally good.

Moldbug portrays liberalism as Cthulhu, a terrifying unspeakable Elder God who is fundamentally evil.

But Arthur? He doesn’t even seem to realize liberalism is a terrifying unspeakable Elder God at all. It’s like, what?
