Would you feel the same way if the donations were going to the American Nazi party?

Maybe Google turning their workplace into its own mini-nation, complete with squabbling political partisans, is a really bad idea. It's like a breeding ground for parasites.

Politics aside, asking your employees to opine about pretty much everything is a fraught policy from an HR perspective, and terrible from a morale standpoint.

This should also serve as a reminder that there is no such thing as an “anonymous” system when it comes to HR, no matter what they say.

I assume this culture grew out of them making the workplace a place that the employees would never leave. They essentially live there from what I've read.

Yeah, corporate culture becomes a weird thing when you make work like college.

You listen to EconTalk with Russ Roberts? He had the authors of this on a few weeks ago.

Nice!

Hey, didn't you post the link to The Three Languages of Politics a while back? If that was you, that makes sense.

It's a really great podcast. I just started listening regularly within the last year or so. I'm going back listening to old episodes, I've heard almost everything since about mid 2015 at this point.

I did. In fact, that author was on EconTalk not too long ago.
Edit: I just realized that you probably heard that podcast and that's why it made sense to you that if I read the Arnold King piece I probably listed to EconTalk. I actually read Roberts' blog post about King first.

Is this a for real thread? I mean, are you all trolling and shitposting? I cannot tell. I'm so confused.

My favorite bit of idiocy from last week from NBC:

I had to triple check it because I was convinced it was satire. Once again I've overrated humanity.

How perfect that the author's name is Marcie (Mars) Bianco (White)-- at first I thought it was just an ornate joke for the headline

This makes some compelling points; beyond a simple take-down of Peterson's rhetoric, it also examines the root of his popularity

That’s pretty fair, but Peterson sees himself as one of his mythical heros, so his wording and “teachings” shouldn’t be taken quite so literally in most cases.
