In case you missed, there was a Politico article last week about effective altruism’s increasing role in politics. The piece isn’t totally perfect, but I think it’s high-quality journalistic engagement — it’s very well-researched, and it gives an impressively clear characterization of what effective altruism is and why effective altruism principles are motivating greater political involvement. If you’re ever looking for an article or primer about what EA has to do with politics both in theory and practice, I think this one is the best so far.
