Late a couple of nights ago I learned about the existence of Milo Yiannopoulos and Ben Shapiro. Really interesting characters, who I really expected not to like; except that I found myself agreeing with a number of their positions, idealogically at least. They have a strong message of self-responsibility, which I strongly agree with, even if they don't always apply it evenly. I was surprised to learn that the gender wage gap was something of a myth as well. I really appreciate the hardline approach they take on safe spaces/trigger warnings as an impediment to free speech and also the de-emotionalizing of race politics in the US. That being said Ben Shapiro is an ungracious asshole, who does nothing to build bridges with people he purports to want to help, but that is not particularly important.
Does anyone know of any good criticism of these guys, or have anything they feel is important to balance out their positions? I am looking around with some interest and will post any goodies I come across.
