My NEW Taki’s column: You Don’t Have To Be Crazy To Be Scott Adams, But It Helps
How can the comments possibly be “JOOOOOO!!”-y? How…?
Why choke down another George Will column about Teapot Dome when you can read Adams’ nigh on Jungian analysis of everybody’s haircuts?
His idiosyncratic, compulsively readable posts, with their refreshingly “autistic” frankness, are mental potato chips. I’d bet they light up the same pleasure centers of your brain as do “ancient astronauts” and “subliminal seduction.” And that should give everyone who’s been gleefully reblogging his “Trump landslide!” musings pause, because Scott Adams may very well be a bit of a nut.
“I take the Schroedinger’s Cat approach to abortion,” Adams wrote last month, “in which I believe that the fetus is a living human if you think it is. And if you think it is not a living human, it is not.” Now, I’m no pro-life fanatic, but that surely strays beyond “stoned libertarian college dorm bull session” into “something a high-IQ serial killer might say.”
