That sentence doesn't propose banning people for extreme content but for who they happen to be regardless of how they behave in the forum.

Saying that certain people who belong to a certain social group that's generally accepted in good company to be the outgroup should be banned outright, seems to advocate something that's very similar to bullying.

I do think it makes sense to ban users who only join a forum like LessWrong to push one particular political perspective. Those people might be "Nazis" but they could also have many different causes.

Whether the emotional experience is positive depends on the ability of the person you are dealing with do deal with feedback and your own ability to give good feedback.

It doesn't depend on whether the other person wants to get feedback on the system II level.

They would be assholes for forming a grudge in the situations and carrying an indirect revenge whether I detect it or not.

"Revenge" is a phrase that implies intent.

Let's say someone invites you for a dinner party. Then you comment on how their food could be improved when they ask for a honest opinion of their cooking.

Some time later the person thinks about throwing a dinner party and about who to invite. They are going to do this likely by thinking of possible invities and seeing what kind of emotional reaction they feel about whether it would be good to invite the person.

The act of having received your feedback does affect the emotional reaction even when the person doesn't remember the incident. There's likely some emotional tension and that makes it less likely that they invite you without them having any ill-will they reasoned about.

This can even happen when the person judges the feedback as welcome on a system II level.

We had the topic of SNS and PSNS recently on a bodywork workshop and one of the points that was made there is that most people in our society are likely too much in SNS and not enough in PSNS.

On the other hand, setting being in PSNS as the goal can also lead to being all the time in a low energy state. If you want to get things done in the world, it's useful to also be able to operate in SNS mode.

When I understand the MetaMed pitch it's:

You can pay a lot of money (high 4 figures or 5 figures) and then we give will research the best treatments for you and there's no promise of effectiveness.

It's my impression that people usually don't want to pay for information directly. People are not willing to pay for a ConsumerReports report before buying a new washing mashine. On the other hand people are quite willing to read Amazon reviews about what's the best washing machine and make their buying decision based on that information. They are also willing to go to the WireCutter and let them get their affiliate commission (even through most of the people likely don't think about the commission).

I think the success of various expensive alternative medicine treatments suggests that people are quite willling to pay money for treatments that they hope will help them with a medical issues for which they currently don't have a solution.

If a person starts answering a questionaire about their pain, it's straightforward to be able to funnel them to the person who does the mirror hands for amputees.

In Germany the person who does mirror hands for amputees would need to spend ~1 year for an education as a "Heilpraktiker" to be allowed to heal people and then a bit of time to learn how the mirror handing works and how to estimate the probabilities.

It's a quite different skillset then the expensive skillset of doctors.

As far as the skillset of making good predictions about treatment success goes, I think it will help in many cases with the clinical decision making. David Burns (who was one of the people who popularized CBT) wrote a bit about how important testing and calibration is in his essay of why he now advocates TEAM instead of CBT. Working with calibration does require additional skills that are a barrier but it pays off. Working that way while being supported by software will be easier then with photocopying sheets the way Burns does.

There's a reason very few people label themselvse as pro-abortion in the US. It's not even a position that's important enough that gallup asks about it. People who favor the right to abortion in the US generally label as pro-choice.

The general argument based on which abortion is legal in the US is about a woman's right to her own body being a very important sacred value that trumps the right to life of the fetus.

It's not that the fetus has no interest in living. It's rather that his preferences aren't that valuable given that he hasn't yet progressed enough in the direction of personhood to overrule the strong sacred value of bodily autonomy.

The US legal system does consider it reasonable to punish people who kill an unborn fetus of a woman without the consent of the woman and doesn't think the fetus counts for nothing.

Given the cheapness of genetic testing, if you take your own argument seriously the woman in question wouldn't be the only person with an obligation to stop the pregnancy from resulting in birth.

I don't think it's within the window of acceptable political discourse within North America to discuss whether or not Trump should do some exercises that get him in touch with his body together with the Chinese before they set down to negotiate, with the goal to get them to mutual understanding of each other.

I'm personally unsure about how reliable Kegan's framework is. But in this case I think there's a basic idea that I believe to be true:

Considering signaling and whether one's tribe wins to be the most important is not an human universal. It takes a certain amount of mental maturity to move past it and the humanities are at the moment not teaching mental maturity at the quality they used to. The democratization through the internet additionally moved power about the public narrative to people with less mental maturity.

Uber managed to be a marketplace that allows people to be more effective at buying taxi services. I see no reason why should be impossible for someone to create a new marketplace that provides a more effective way to buy medical services or legal services.

You would need to run the system at a jurisdiction that gives some freedom, but it's worth keeping in mind that most Westerns jurisdictions provide at the moment enough freedom for acupuncturists and homeopaths being in business.

You wouldn't start by going directly after mainstream medicine but with more alternative providers like hypnotists.

A hypnotists who can cure an allergy in a few hours of work would benefit a lot from a central website funneling him clients that know that he can actually cure patients reliably of their allergies. A highly effective hypnotists is going to make a lot more money when he's payed by the outcomes he produces instead of him being payed by the hour.

I believe that there are enough people currently who can produce great outcomes for their clients but who don't have any way to trustworthly inform prospective buyers about their skills and distinguish themselves from the noise empty marketing promises that a startup who provides a marketplace where those people could sell their services would be viable.

Vassar speaks in The legend of healthcare about how much value a person who provides the mirror hand treatment for amputees can provide to patients. If a person in a city specializes in doing the mirror hand treatment and could advertises their services to the patients who need them via such a marketplace the person could create an obsene amount of value while being able to charge prices that reflect that the buyer knows that this is his way to stop the immense pain.

in a way that's a lot simpler for humans to handle and doesn't serve as a giant tax on people who don't have graduate-level probability skills.

I don't think you need high level probability skills on the buyer side. If a website lists treatments and says treatment A has 60% chance of curing you and costs 500$ while treatment B has 80% chance of curing you and costs 1000$ that doesn't need graduate level math.

Unfortunately, you need some statistics skills on the provider side but teaching healthcare providers the ability to make accurate predictions about the effects of their intervention, will likely lead to them making better treatment decisions.

I like "I feel language". I think nonviolent communication is good. It's however a huge misunderstand of violent communication that it's simply about exchanging a few words without exchanging the meaning. It cheapens the language. It has an aspect of dishonesty. People engaging in that kind of dishonesty is the reason that there are articles written about how nonviolent communication doesn't work.

The institution of trigger warning exists because some people don't want to be exposed to certain information that makes them feel bad. Banning users on LW who write posts that make you feel bad is similar.

I was thinking of "political questions" in terms of the kind of conventional and typical problems most people try to solve in politics.

You can use this kind of definition of politics but you have to be careful as it means that political power has nothing to do with politics. In that frame Robert Moses can have the power to get the parliament in New York to pass whatever bill he wants without him doing anything political.

Of course it's about diplomacy, which is political, but it's so out of left field, "what kind of exercise should diplomats do before negotiations?" seems to me "outside the Overton window" in the same sense of the question "what should I have for lunch today?" I don't see how you mean for the two to intersect.

That reaction is because it's far enough outside of your Overton window that you don't have a good way to think about the question and what it means.

The question "what should I have for lunch today?" is different because you don't want to achieve political ends. Getting diplomats to do exercises to get in touch with their body on the other hand can be a means to get them to come to a peaceful resolution instead of waging war.

Two people who are at Kegan level 4 are likely to have a debate that is at it's core about which ideas are better.

Two people at Kegan level 2 or 3 are going to put more value in their tribe winning than in the inherent quality of the ideas that are under discussion.

It's a description of the effects had by progressives/liberals typically having a disproportionately progressive/liberal social media bubble, and respectively likewise for conservatives.

It's largely a non-evidence based description of effects. Horoscopes are also descriptions of effects of people being classified in a certain way.

I think he common narrative about filter bubbles makes assumptions about effect sizes that aren't well backed by empirical data even if I grant that the effects aren't zero.

I see no reason why you are not allowed to discuss a specific example when someone talks abstractly when you consider this example to be important.

If you think the principle advocated in a post like Where to Draw the Boundaries? gets case X very wrong, it would be illuminating to write out why you think the principle that's advocated gets case X wrong and how that shows that the abstract principle is flawed.

It's harder to defend as that means you actually have to articulate a coherent concept of the concept of identity and argue why that concept is better then Where to Draw the Boundaries? but it's very far removed from saying that you are not allowed to defend yourself.

As far as the norms of double crux goes, when there's an object level disagreement and the crux seems to be on a higher abstract layer, the standard way to proceed would be to actually discuss the higher layer.

In the health care system hard patients are usually send to hospital that have a reputation for being able to deal with hard cases well, and thus I'm not sure how well simply statistics go.

I wrote the prediction-based medicine article to propose a system that would actually be able to allow you to compare the skill of two medical practioners for your individual issue.

You could do the same thing with lawyers. You shop around and tell a few lawyers about your case and every lawyer has to give you the likelihood of them winning your case for you. When there's a system that tracks the predictions in the background and tells you how good the lawyer would be at predicting, you would suddenly be able to shop for the best lawyer.

My solution for getting out of my own filter bubble, not only to understand people around me, but to seek what's true beyond that, has been to be cognizant of the full span of contemporary political discourse, including those political perspectives that fall outside the Overton window to the left, to the right, or whatever direction.

To me this still seems like a strong filter as it's still thinking in the one dimensional frame of politics where politics is about a certain set of questions.

The question about whether or not the US should switch to an inquisitorial legal system like Germany has, is a political question that's not much asked in contemporary political discourse.

A similar question would be whether the Anglo-Saxon paradigm of how to do accounting is really better then the old German way.

If you move further then you get to question such as whether diplomats should do exercise that increase their bodily perception before sitting down to negotiate about important matters where the question is even farther out of the Overton window.

I think this frame of filter of filter bubbles is misleading. I think Kegan's levels of development are a more useful frame for understanding the problem.

If a Kegan level 3 liberal sees a post of a conversative on Facebook, the result isn't that they get more moderate because they are exposed to views outside their filter bubble. They rather get angry and more radicalized.

We used to live in a society where the opinion makers where mostly Kega level 4 and thus didn't consider winning tribal conflicts to be the most important thing.

Postmodernism that was about getting from Kegan level 4 to level 5 unfortunately destroyed the ability of the university to bring a large number of opinion makers from Kegan level 3 to level 4 which is what a good humanities education could do before it was deconstructed.

The internet provides additional flatting by giving more power to set opinions to the majority at Kegan level 2 and 3. The conflict that exists comes from the public agenda being set by people with lower Kegan level then it used to be the case.
