I really enjoyed this book review and appreciated how well-written it was. It captured my attention and didn’t feel like a slog to get through at all.
If I were to make a suggestion, it would be to think of some question you can ask that can spark discussion. After reading this review I feel like I gained knowledge, but don’t feel like I have any good handles to comment about it. (to be fair, I tried to add some comment-affordances to my book review and also didn’t get any responses, so maybe this advice is not actually great)
To be honest, I was expecting to get pushback from libertarian-leaning types who were opposed to Orwell’s socialism, or leftwing types opposed to Churchill—he’s become controversial recently and this review was partly a defense of the key thing that I think is valuable about him. Or else pushback against my claim that you can trace EA and longtermist ideas that far back—but maybe this audience just agrees with me on all of these points!
