European Balkanisation: Why Scotland Shouldn’t Be Independent

NEW IDEAL LIVE – AYN RAND INSTITUTE’S WEEKLY PODCAST

Oxford Philosophy professor William MacAskill has quickly become noteworthy as the guru of the "effective altruism" movement. This movement supposedly applies a rational, data-driven perspective to selecting the charitable causes that do the most good. In his latest book, What We Owe the Future, MacAskill claims that true effective altruists pay careful attention to the welfare of the people of the distant future. Should we be concerned about the kinds of future doomsday scenarios MacAskill conjures -- rule by artificial intelligence, global nuclear war, environmental catastrophe? Do we have obligations to people in the distant future? Join Don Watkins, Mike Mazza, and Ben Bayer to discuss what MacAskill's focus reveals about the core premises of the "effective altruist" movement, and about the moral code of altruism as such.
