I am probably best known for my data-blogging on topics of ideology and public opinion. I've received favorable mentions by leading social scientists such as Steven Pinker and Jonathan Haidt, bloggers such as Scott Alexander and Megan McArdle, left-leaning authors such as Matt Yglesias for Vox.com, and right-leaning outlets such as National Review.
- Who’s Afraid of Free Speech in the United States?
- Are Americans Becoming More Conservative or Liberal (Right or Left)?
- Are Politically Correct Students Better or Worse Students?
I first became known for some blog posts that got me in trouble in 2017. They are mostly about why I think left-wingers should read and talk to "neoreactionaries."
- Is It Dangerous to Engage Seriously With Radical Right-Wing Thinkers?
- On Turning Left Into Darkness
- The Psychology of Prohibiting Outside Thinkers
More generally, I am mostly interested in revolutionary exits from modern secular liberalism: I therefore write a lot about the information revolution, internet culture, ideological cleavages, the rationality of religion (especially Catholicism), and how to liberate life from institutional suppression.
