Talk:Very Serious People
Sam Harris would fit well on this list. Reluctantly admitting he is a "moderate liberal" who is in fact almost entirely a neoliberal supporting regime change. He overemphasizes politeness and dislikes the disruptive nature of both the left and the right. He constantly gives the government the benefit of the doubt ("lets focus on their 'intentions'"), particularly the U.S. military. — Unsigned, by: 18.104.22.168 / talk / contribs
I was surprised to see Zakaria in the list. I remember him choosing people for interviews who brought original, non-mainstream ides witht hem. That's not what a VSP would do. He was also willing to passionately defend Muslims against IIRC Maher, for example.
On the Characteristics of Very Serious People
It seems a fair lot of the "characteristics of very serious people" are US-specific. As a Franco-Belgian this annoys me a little. For instance, there is written that you shouldn't talk with them about French politics, but that would hardly apply for any French VSP. I'd suggest a rewrite of this part. Anyone on board?

what about "Very Serious Articles?"
- Though on fairness, I see little utility for this article. It has a huge bullet list, isn't backed by any examples and it looks like a hodgepodge list of people and organizations, some without links, that I wish were explained better why they get the Very Serious Person label. --It's-a me, 🎄LeftyGreenMario!🎄(Mod) 20:50, 24 February 2019 (UTC)
