of Bryan Caplan's new book on parenting made it sound interesting and commonsensical, so I looked at Caplan's own blog. Yikes! No common sense there. It's pure undiluted Ayn Rand. Not the careful Bowdlerized meritocratic version of Rand that you get from brand-R parrots like Rush. This is raw.
I really didn't know this line of thinking existed. The consensus
there is clear and explicit: Only Mensa members deserve to live. Only people who can "think like economists" deserve to live. Lower-IQ people are simply "negative externalities" and ideally should be killed.
In other words, Caplan is leading the Daleks.
