Over 50 stories make up the Jimiverse, where the boys are adopted by a hellhound and then goes on to cover the next three generations of the infernal line. The 'verse in general perfectly captures the personalities of the Winchester brothers and co. Lately AU Bobby is still alive and Crowley is, if not good, then neutralbut has now become a sort of head-canon for this troper. Lampito has taken every stereotypical fic type - from sister-fics to M-Preg to de-aged to kid-fic and just about everything else you can think of - and put her own unique spin on it, complete with unbelievable humour and occasional fanservice.
If any moron on a street corner could correctly point out the errors being made by bigshot PhDs, why would the PhDs never consider changing? A few of these are completely made up and based on radical misunderstandings of what economists are even trying to do.
As for the rest, my impression is that economists not only know about these criticisms, but invented them. During the last few paradigm shifts in economics, the new guard levied these complaints against the old guard, mostly won, and their arguments percolated down into the culture as The Correct Arguments To Use Against Economics.
Now the new guard is doing their own thing — behavioral economics, experimental economics, economics of effective government intervention. The first accusation is about forty years out of date, the second one a misrepresentation of ideas that are themselves fifteen years out of date.
The criticism is the exact opposite of reality, because reality is formed by everybody hearing the criticism all the time and over-reacting to it.
|Shirky: A Group Is Its Own Worst Enemy||Some ask, "Where do you get your ideas?|
They think they can get the right answer to everything just by thinking about it, but in reality intelligent thought requires not just brute-force application of IQ but also domain expertise, hard-to-define-intuition, trial-and-error, and a humble openness to criticism and debate.
Instead of just trying to be right all the time, people should want to help others and change the world. Like the economics example, these combine basic mistakes with legitimate criticisms levied by rationalists themselves against previous rationalist paradigms or flaws in the movement.
There have been past paradigms for which some of these criticisms are pretty fair. Even the early days of our own movement on Overcoming Bias and Less Wrong had a lot of this. But notice how many of those names are blue. Each of those links goes to book reviews, by me, of books studying those people and how they went wrong.
They try to focus on doubting themselves instead of criticizing others. They include painters, poets, dancers, photographers, and novelists.
They are among the strongest proponents of the effective altruist movement, encourage each other to give various percents of their income to charity, and founded or lead various charitable organizations. I hope that constant vigilance has given us at least a tiny bit of a leg up, in the determining-what-is-true field, compared to people who think this is unnecessary and truth-seeking is a waste of time.The most objectionable part of straw manning is the claim that a specific person or group has a certain (poorly thought out) belief, without any solid evidence that this is the case.
