I just wanted to point out again that I’m indebted to a number of recent authors who helped me puzzle through modern liberalism. I wanted to call one out and mention a few more that I forgot.
First of all, Bernie Horn’s “Framing the Future” is a great book. Some of his language comes straight through into my writing. I didn’t put footnotes in my previous posts, so to avoid someone accusing me of plagiarism, I’ll mention him again.
As for someone I failed to mention, I was introduced to how liberalism addresses luck by Matt Miller in his great book “The 2% Solution”, even though Miller calls himself a centrist.
And lastly, Sam Harris in his “Letter to Christian Nation” helped me to understand how important the question of suffering is when discussing morality. I also recently found Bart Ehrman’s “God’s Problem”, which I just started reading today.
Yeah, I love books.
