“Opening with a strong claim, making your readers scroll through a lot of introductory text, and ending abruptly with “but I don’t feel like justifying my point in any way, so come up with your own arguments” is not a very good look on this forum. “I wasn’t intending the text included in the post to be introductory...”[I have read the entirety of The Inner Ring, but not the vast series of apparent prerequisite posts to this one. I would be very surprised if reading them caused me to disagree with the points in this comment, though.]”If you don’t want to read the existing work that undergirds this post, why should I expect further writing to change your mind about the topic?
I have read all except one post you linked to. I don’t understand how your post related to the two posts about children and would appreciate a comment. I agree with your argument that “EA jobs provide scarce non-monetary goods” and that it is hard to get hired by EA organisations. However, it is unclear to me that any of these posts provide a damaging critique to EA. I would be surprised if anyone managed to create a movement without any of these dynamics. However, I would also be excited to see working tackling these putative problems such as the non-monetary value of different jobs.
