Table of Contents Elizabeth Bennet The second daughter in the Bennet family, and the most intelligent and quick-witted, Elizabeth is the protagonist of Pride and Prejudice and one of the most well-known female characters in English literature. Her admirable qualities are numerous—she is lovely, clever, and, in a novel defined by dialogue, she converses as brilliantly as anyone.
Posted on September 16, by Scott Alexander I. It takes a special sort of person to be a cardiologist.
This is not always a good thing. Maryland cardiologist performs over dangerous unnecessary surgeries to make money. Unrelated Maryland cardiologist performs another 25 in a separate incident. Philadelphia cardiologistsame. North Carolina cardiologist, same. My point is not just about the number of cardiologists who perform dangerous unnecessary surgeries for a quick buck.
That could all just be attributed to some distorted incentives in cardiology as a field. My point is that it takes a special sort of person to be a cardiologist. Consider the sexual harassment.
Stanford cardiologist charged with sexually harassing students. Baltimore cardiologist found guilty of sexual harassment. Three different Pennsylvania cardiologists sexually harassing the same woman. Arizona cardiologist suspended on 19! Manhattan cardiologist taking naked pictures of patients, then using them to sexually abuse employees.
New York cardiologist secretly installs spycam in office bathroom. Just to shake things up, a Florida cardiologist was falsely accused of sexual harassment as part of feud with another cardiologist. And yeah, you can argue that if you put high-status men in an office with a lot of subordinates, sexual harassment will be depressingly common just as a result of the environment.
The California cardiologist who killed a two-year-old kid. Then it gets weird. Like I said, it takes a special sort of person. It sounds like the same idea as plain old stereotyping, something we think about often and are carefully warned to avoid.
But after re-reading the post, I think the argument is more complex. There are over a billion Chinese people. If even one in a thousand is a robber, you can provide one million examples of Chinese robbers to appease the doubters.
If you spend twelve hours a day on the task and can describe one crime every ten seconds, you can spend four months doing nothing but providing examples of burglarous Chinese — and still have absolutely no point. There are lots of people — million in America alone. No matter what point the media wants to make, there will be hundreds of salient examples.
But data on police shootings in America that were reported last week by The Guardian tell a much different story of increasing police safety. When politically convenient, it is easy to make Americans believe in a war on police simply by better coverage of existing murders of police officers.
Given that America is a big country with very many police, even a low base rate will provide many lurid police-officer-murder stories — by my calculation, two murders a week even if officers are killed only at the same rate as everyone else. We all hear anecdotes about terrible police brutality.
Given that there are aboutpolice officers in the US, is X consistent with the problem being systemic and dire, or with the problem being relatively limited? Suddenly the rate of police brutality has decreased five times from what it was a second ago.
If you previously believed that there werepolice officers, and that the police brutality rate was shameful but that decreasing the rate to only one-fifth its previous level would count as a victory, well, now you can declare victory. Do you have any idea at all how many police there are?
What if I told you the real number was a million cops? I feel this way about a lot of things.
