The Evil One is Out With a New Book

I consider Cass Sunstein one of the most dangerous people who advises the U.S.  government.

He is smart and a master of propaganda and manipulation that results in more authoritarian government. From TSA lines to Obamacare, this monster has been involved in the design of methods to herd the masses.

He is out with a new book, The Ethics of Influence: Government in the Age of Behavioral Science.

From the blurb:
In recent years, 'Nudge Units' or 'Behavioral Insights Teams' have been created in the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, and other nations. All over the world, public officials are using the behavioral sciences to protect the environment, promote employment and economic growth, reduce poverty, and increase national security. In this book, Cass R. Sunstein, the eminent legal scholar and best-selling co-author of Nudge (2008), breaks new ground with a deep yet highly readable investigation into the ethical issues surrounding nudges, choice architecture, and mandates, addressing such issues as welfare, autonomy, self-government, dignity, manipulation, and the constraints and responsibilities of an ethical state. Complementing the ethical discussion, The Ethics of Influence: Government in the Age of Behavioral Science contains a wealth of new data on people's attitudes towards a broad range of nudges, choice architecture, and mandates.



  1. Sunstein reminds me of O'Brien, the thought police agent and chief antagonist in "1984. Charming like a cobra.

  2. I don't know why but I have a hunch that if Sunstein didn't wake tomorrow, the sun would shine just a little brighter in the sky.
