Doublethink (Choosing to be Biased)

This post strikes me as being pretty arrogant. Actually the whole blog tends in that direction, but this post especially, where the author finally makes clear the dichotomy between the readers of this blog (the uber-rationalists) and everyone else (the stupid).

When your world view causes you to believe that everyone who is not single-mindedly pursuing your worldview is stupid, I think you should treat that as a warning sign of bias. Even if your world view is about overcoming bias.
