One of the best parts of my latest @JonahRemnant appearance is how @JonahNRO & @jackbutler4815 basically call me a trade nerd yet use a bunch of Sci-fi/fantasy references that I totally don't get (tho at the time I nodded along to be nice to the nerds).
But more seriously I really enjoyed the second half of the discussion on National Conservativism and what I like to call Flight 93 Policymaking. More on that to come.
So what is "Flight 93 Policymaking"? It's the increasingly-common (and thus increasingly-troubling) view on the right that Issue X is so disastrous & urgent that it warrants the wholesale abandonment of one's once-core principles
It's especially troubling bc the evidence cited to show said disastrousness/urgency is usually flimsy (at best) & pushed by non-experts, yet accepted as gospel. Certainly not isolated to trade, either. It's *pervasive*. Big problem.
