Two posts I think about commonly are A Tale of Two Tradeoffs and This Is The Dream Time.

Others I see on the top voted list that I remember finding valuable include Politics Isn't About Policy, Stories Are Like Religion, Inequality Talk Is About Grabbing, What We Should Study, and Beware Star Academia.

But there are literally 1000+ posts, and I'd like to (as I think I've mention to you ricraz) organise a subset of them into a more readable ordering sometime.

I hadn't read "Beware Star Academia" before and it was quite an interesting concept.

This perhaps points a bit towards separate questions of "what are the best intro to Hanson posts" and "what are the best Hanson posts you might have missed if you only read the highlights?"
