Scott Alexander's master work. I tried looking for an excerpt to use, but it's hard to quote. Block out some time this evening and read it through if you haven't. It has my high recommendation.

I read Meditations and came away...a bit confused. I hope to read it again some time, but could you give me some guidance as to what exactly you picked up from it?

This post did a really good thing to how I see the world's problems. So much of what's wrong with the world is the fault of no one. Encapsulating the dynamics at play into "Moloch" helped me change the way I viewed/view the world, at a pretty fundamental level.
