  • I like the idea of the Lottocracy, however i want to challenge your reasoning behind it. In the video you envisioned a group of people chosen at random to decide certain matters of politics. But to get them to make an informed decision they need some instance to inform them about the matter at hand. But this information will have to come from other people who will be able to influence the decisionmaking. This problem can be observed in the US-american juridical system. Usually the person with the rhetorically better attorney will win in court, not the person who is factually right.

  • I liked the parts of the video that talked about how human reasoning works and the possible evolutionary reasons for its quirks, but I feel something is missing from this discussion: the scientific method. The enlightenment and the "age of reason" it awakened placed great emphasis on the scientific method, which put our theories and reasons to the test by comparing it to our observations of reality. This has proved to be more fruitful than debating our reasons with each other ad nauseam. When I complain, "if only people are more rationale," my complaint is that people are refusing to acknowledge easily verifiable observations or the results of scientific experiments. This goes beyond confirmation bias, it is tribalism; they refuse to accept any evidence that goes against the beliefs or practices of "their tribe" even when challenged. More discussion is not necessarily going to improve their reasons. More empathy might help, but on a global scale, compassion fatigue sets in. I am not sure how society is going to handle hyper-objects in the coming decades. I am hopeful; though I have no reason.

  • Thanks for a great discussion. You made many good points. However, let me make a few remarks: 1. First, social reasoning as an evolutionary process doesn't need to be contradictory to individual reasoning, in the sense that the latter is just a sophisticated and well trained, well practiced, form of the former. In other words, "scientists" are just people who come up with much better reasons in their respective fields of expertise than normal people. As such, it would be very valuable to pay attention to them and consider their claims. 2. Yes, we often go from conclusion to reason to generalization, but there *is* a point to this: namely the generalization. A.K.A. "learning from mistakes." This process helps us make better decisions next time and become wiser people. For example, you might decide X is a liar, and then produce some reasons for why you thought that. But then, if you do this every time, you gradually form better and better lie detectors and the process might help you more reasonably evaluate someone's character as you become wiser. In other words, a "philosophical" person does "inter-social" as well as "intra-social" reasoning (applying "social reasoning" principles to one's own thoughts). 3. In these modern times, I hope we can do better than "election/reasoning by simplistic lottery." Why NOT use the many scientists and great minds that we have? I find that people often know what's good for them even if they are bad at scientific reasoning themselves: for example, someone isn't a doctor, but he still knows how to choose the best doctor out there and why they should listen to a good doctor. When you're truly sick, many of your biases against science magically disappear! Perhaps using internet and modern technology we can much better connect all people with scientists and "technocrats" and use algorithmic (maybe like the PageRank algorithm??) to pass on decisions to the right people knowledgeable to handle them? Perhaps we can find ways to respect "technocracy" and democracy at the same time?

  • I'm on the autism spectrum, so the part about how you don't consciously think about recognizing emotions is interesting to me. There have been many occasions when, after a third person leaves, someone who I'm conversing with says "wow, they were in a bad mood." And then since I didn't pick up on the nonverbal signals and the person didn't directly say anything that would imply that they are angry, I ask "what makes you say that?" And if I press them on their answers, pointing out where they don't actually know for sure each time, they invariably end up saying something like "I don't know, it just feels like they were in a bad mood."

Indeed, using this philosophy has been highly beneficial to CS specifically for creating a math that is very good at being computable.

  • There's plenty of other people you could have chosen to work with that wasn't bill gates. Like, of all people you had to go for the kind of immoral greedy capitalist that continues to perpetuate the profit centered cause of our continued inaction in helping the climate. We can't just wait for a lottocracy to be tried out here and there so that our collective reasoning can finally lead to action, we need to get rid of the more tangible issue which is consumerism and infinite growth as a concept on a limited planet. Trying with futility to convince denialists that it IS happening certainly isn't getting us where we want to be so as to avoid climate disaster and the wealthy certainly don't need reasoning to get away with destroying our planet for profit.

    • @BoogerWall The fact that you replied alone makes it obvious that i'm not just talking to no one here. People should voice their opinion where it's relevant. i did watch the whole video and i liked the insight on human behavior it provided, but the conclusions drawn and the somewhat simplistic solution doesn't address many of the issues we face with our mode of production in general and the threat it poses to our climate. I spend much of my time hearing the opinions of others on this and they usually only provide market oriented solutions and other inadequate measures, if they were convincing then i wouldn't be here implying we do something about capitalism as a whole. Many have made the points Gates makes and he doesn't need to be a mentioned source when what he says is in such contradiction to what he does as a billionaire.

      MeaslyMeaslyPrieš 15 val
    • I'm sorry who are you pitching this to? Because as far I am concerned, I'm the only one who read your comment. If you really want to voice your opinion, maybe you could watch the whole video. It talks about compromise, it talks about consensus and reaching an idea we can all agree to. So if you really want to express what you think is to quote from your own words "a kind of immoral greedy capitalist" maybe you should stay in school and get the kind of group friend who is ready to challenge your ideas. Besides, how do you know that his theory in execution won't work. The man didn't get to his high status for nothing. He pondered over a plan, researched, observed places where some sollutions worked and wrote it all down neatly in a comprehensible text at your disposal. Plus this was one part of the video, it wasn't even the main focus.

  • We naturally look for leaders. People and reasons to guide us in the shelter and safety of easy reasons to follow. Thinking about problems on your own is exhausting and deliberating them is even more exhausting. Probably why leaders were made in the first place, settling arguments and conflicts in reason. I adore the idea of lottocracy but there's immediate inherent problems. How would we then shift from leaders settling arguments into arguments settling arguments? What if differences in reason can't be settled? Would the problem reasoned about be abandoned or different random people selected? How many people? Would it be one group or many? How many groups and how many people? How many randomly selected people can we even properly educate and trust with morals and ethics before allowing them to decide on suggestions or solutions for societal problems.

  • Another benefit of having civilian deliberation groups would be that you lose the barrier to entry to political participation of having to have a comprehensive and fixed belief system/ideology. The problem with this is that very few if any people have actually researched and reasoned out positions on every political issue adequately, and as a result the vast majority fall back to a rigid, established ideologies to maintain credibility, in the process outsourcing their beliefs to a binary party system. With deliberation groups, people get the opportunity to get well informed about and form an independent argument for an individual issue, which is actually doable, instead of having to post hoc rationalize a stance of an ideology that they have subscribed to merely out of political necessity.

Regardless, my point was more about the fact that individuals will be more free to have an belief system that is a actually unique to them and thus decisions will be made based on conclusions that ppl make on their own account rather than ones they just kinda were placed into.
