Dear Holden and all Karnofskyites ,
Thanks for this great post and discussion—I really enjoyed the audio too.
I began to compose a comment here but then it rambled on and on, and dived into various weird rabbit holes, and then I realised I needed to do more reading.
I ended up writing a full-length essay over Easter and have just posted it on my new blog ‘Path findings’. I launched this a few weeks ago inspired by reading your post ‘Learning by Writing’ - and yay it seems that really works!
Anyway, here’s the post , fresh off the slab
I’d be thrilled if you could take a few moments to read or at least skim it, and would welcome any and all feedback, however brutal!
Up front I confess not all the arguments are consistent, and the puns are consistently terrible, but I hope it makes some kind of sense. It will appeal particularly to people who like philosophy, ecology and rabbits, and features a lovely illustration Lyndsey Green.
As a taster, here are some of the section headers (and most of the terrible puns):
Warren peace: a brief history of British rabbits
Too many bunnies? Malthus bites back
Abundant lives: valuing people now and in future
Staying alive: trolling the trolley problems
Of bunnies and bugs: who qualifies as people?
Back to life, back to reality… being human
You have been warned!
