One of these days I’m going to highlight some of the excellent websites and blogs among the Ethics Alarms links (to your left!), but for the moment I’m directing your attention to a new one: the Behavioral Legal Ethics Blog. The three professors who contribute to the blog describe it, accurately, like this:
“Behavioral Legal Ethics is a place for a wide-ranging discussion about the intersection between behavioral science, law and ethics. The conversations will appeal to anyone interested in the ways in which empirical psychological research can inform questions about how legal institutions and practices encourage ethical behaviors in legal and non-legal actors.”
I had intended to add this superb blog to my links for some time. I confess that the fact that the current post quotes me did prompt me to finally act.

Someone actually quote this right-wing echo chamber as though it were an objective source?
(’tis a jest)
Your comment, of course, was excellent, but Ms. Wilson had a line in her article I thought was particularly relevant, to most everything.
” listen to all viewpoints, keep an open mind, challenge your own views, and subject them to constant and meaningful testing.”
More people did this, we’d have far fewer Fergusons.
And that wonderful old libby motto: Question Authority.
Happily, it’s not just a libby motto.
Maybe current Liberals would do well to take that off the shelf, give it a good dusting, and hurl it at the administration. I’m just saying.
