The Deaths of Effective Altruism
Sam Bankman-Fried is finally facing punishment. Let’s also put his ruinous philosophy on trial.

Nick Bostrom, Longtermism, and the Eternal Return of Eugenics
The techno-utopian ideology gets its fuel, in part, from scientific racism.

Ginsberg’s Theorem:

  1. You can’t win. (restatement of first law of thermodynamics)
  2. You can’t break even. (restatement of second law of thermodynamics)
  3. You can’t even get out of the game. (restatement of third law of thermodynamics)

Freeman’s Commentary on Ginsberg’s Theorem states that “Every major philosophy that attempts to make life seem meaningful is based on the negation of one part of Ginsberg’s Theorem.”

  1. Capitalism is based on the assumption that you can win.
  2. Socialism is based on the assumption that you can break even.
  3. Mysticism is based on the assumption that you can quit the game.
What could possibly go wrong?
