Brilliant Idea

I love the idea of an ideological Turing Test:

Put me and five random liberal social science Ph.D.s in a chat room.  Let liberal readers ask questions for an hour, then vote on who isn’t really a liberal.  Then put Krugman and five random libertarian social science Ph.D.s in a chat room.  Let libertarian readers ask questions for an hour, then vote on who isn’t really a libertarian.  Simple as that.

What a delightful idea.

There are a lot of problems in the world that could be eradicated if people were more easily able to adopt others’ perspectives.
