Yesterday, I noted in fine print that community pressures seemed to be keeping Daniel Davies from giving communitarian Amitai Etzioni the thrashing he deserved on Crooked Timber, his communal blog. It seems some other Crooked Timber workers aren't so inhibited.

Today, Kieran Healey takes Etzioni to task for a truly bizarre post which seems to blame the baleful influence of The Matrix (yes, the movie) for several murders, because the murderers either liked the movie, or thought they were living in it.

Etzioni may not have noticed the rash of abortion clinic bombers, homicidal gay bashers, violent "Christian Identity" racists, and other assorted nuts who use the Christian bible as justification for violent crime. Clearly this is a work deserving of censure, at the very least...
