The Increasingly Dull Edge of 'Hypocrisy' Takedowns (E53, 50:10)
Some points from it:
* Pointing out hyprocracy for people who don't even care about consistency is pointless by now.
* .. it allows you to criticize without taking a political position yourself.
* .. it promotes non-position taking in general.
* changing your minds can happen(duh) prominent people should say why.
Altogether good things to look out for.
