Yet another weird SF fan

I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

Does Academia Discriminate against Conservatives?

Some academics think so. In the comments here (about the blog of Luboš Motl, a “reactionary physicist”):

I think for him it would be the best, simply to SHUT DOWN HIS BLOG IMMEDIATELY and concentrate himself working on some papers. He has ruined his life with his blog.

In Munich, I’ve heared Suesskind complaining personally about Lubos Blog! If Lubos would not have this blog, almost everyone would employ a former Harvard professor. (But of course, Lubos won’t shut down his blog, because he thinks that he was always right, seeing no insults he has made. He writes that he “does not enjoy elementary human rights now”, and this shows no insight, that he has done something wrong)


On the other hand, this might be an isolated incident.

I would have a lot more sympathy for Motl if there wasn't good reason to believe he really is deranged. Some of his responses to critics of string theory are completely over the top.
