Can you give an example of a point or points in there you found compelling?

That article looks like the usual "utilitarianism is bad" stuff (an argument which predates EA by a long time and has seen little progress in recent times) combined with some strong mood affiliation and straightforward misunderstandings of economic thinking to me.

Here's one, from philosophy student 'Bentham's Bulldog'.

Thanks,  I had missed it. The search here doesn't sort by date.
