Eddie Vedder, of the rock band Pearl Jam, offers a Utilitarian assessment of the gun situation in American society:
In many ways, Vedder’s thoughts remind me of the philosopher Jeff McMahan’s argument that I looked at back in May.
In March, I referred to the gun culture of Wyoming as a a form of cultural psychosis. It is a form of psychosis that reaches far beyond Wyoming.
In the grand cultural divide, I will take Eddie Vedder over Ted Nugent any day. The above clip reminds me why.
