A bloc unified against ‘low information’

Here we see Land linking to Tyler’s article, again, despite Tyler being pro-immigration, pro-open borders, and anti-Brexit. But Tyler is not the only one with these views. Many other liberals share them too, but what makes Tyler special. The Tyler-NRx-rationality diaspora seemed confusing but then I kinda put it all together, as a bloc unified against ‘low information’, as well as opposing direct democracy in favor of something more autocratic or oligarchical, with some utilitarian-based policy. For NRx, it’s a ‘right-wing’ variant of elitism; for neoliberals like Tyler, and rationalists, it’s a more ‘left-wing’ variant. This is discussed in more detail in the Intellectual Solvent series: 1, 2, and 3.
