We are, as Scott Adams notes, in the middle of a mass public hysteria. To people outside the current mass hysteria, it’s obvious that Donald Trump is not a Russian puppet, that Mike Pence has no desire to electrocute gay teenagers, and … most of all… that racism is not running amok in the country. […]

For those horrified by President Trump, you’ve got a great spokesperson with Sam Harris. But if you want to understand those who don’t share your horror, Scott Adams does a brilliant job explaining Trump and what we’re experiencing. I have not listened to Sam Harris religiously, but my kids are fans so I’ve listened to […]

Will Kim Jung Un and Bashir Assad prove Adams right? Scott Adams has argued for over a year and a half that President Trump is a ‘Master Persuader’, going so far as to argue that the President, in many cases, could depose a foreign leader with words alone. Trump may be in the process of […]

Scott Adams was interviewed for Bloomberg before the election (I think he gave a comment or two to the writer after as well). The article was just now published. Apparently the author assumed Trump was going to lose and the rewrite was a time-consuming challenge. How Scott Adams Got Hypnotized by Trump Preview Open

Recently, on one of Scott Adams live Periscope videos, he was asked if he would appear on an Adam Corolla podcast. He responded that he would, if invited. Given that he is an author with books to tout, I imagine that he would welcome an invitation to appear on Ricochet, and would offer us an […]

Scott Adams (he of Dilbert fame) has been ahead of the game on the Trump phenomenon for some time now, and his post from January 29th should give us pause.  … lately I get the feeling that Trump’s critics have evolved from expecting Trump to be Hitler to preferring it. Obviously they don’t prefer it in a conscious […]

Regulate Twitter as a Utility?

 

Should Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram be considered as Public Utilities and regulated accordingly?  This was the question posed yesterday by Scott Adams, of Dilbert (and election 2016 prognostication) fame.  Of course the question itself assumes that the existing regulation of utilities, in their operations and services, is already a good (or least a necessary) activity of government, and that regulation in turn requires us to define what a Public Utility is.  Merriam Webster’s definition is, to my mind, unsatisfactorily circular:

a business organization (as an electric company) performing a public service and subject to special governmental regulationhttps://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/public%20utility

Sorry to be offering more gloomy mews, but Adams has now reversed himself, arguing that Trump’s sexual scandals will likely prove too many for him to overcome, so Hillary will almost certainly win unless a dramatic scandal, a “meteor’, engulfs her: http://blog.dilbert.com/post/151737656851/the-era-of-women Preview Open

Once again, in response to NeverTrumper Erick Erickson’s challenge to Mr. Adams to put a positive spin on the Access Hollywood tape, he takes a contrarian view and predicts very bad upcoming weeks for the Clintons. http://blog.dilbert.com/post/151504993671/why-does-this-happen-on-my-vacation-the-trump Preview Open

On Sept 29, after the first debate, Stefan Molyneux interviewed Scott Adams. So far I’ve only viewed the first ten minutes (it runs for an hour), but what I saw was very thought-provoking and I recommend it- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tfDrqnjfT6A (The USC/LATimes poll that has Trump leading by 4 points was one of the most accurate in […]

In my previous post ( http://ricochet.com/377551/trumps-temperament-yes-another-scott-adams-post/ ) I linked to a blog post by Adams that pointed out, among other things, that Trump only attacks those that attack him. In this post, http://blog.dilbert.com/post/151301555066/the-week-i-became-a-target Adams described how Hillary’s paid trolls have now targeted him, even though he has not attacked Hillary. This viciousness mirrors the behavior of […]

In this post, Adams notes Trump’s predictability and proportionate response to attacks, arguing that this makes Trump a safer bet than Hillary: http://blog.dilbert.com/post/151288850856/presidential-temperament Adams notes that Trump has never physically attacked anyone who insulted him and- Preview Open
