More important and dangerous than the silly scientism of Harris is that of the old left of marxists with their historical materialism and its dead-sure certaintyies that have sunk the hopes of a universally shared ideology of revolution and postcapitalism. Harris is basically taking us back to the world of Feuerbach, with a few new twists, but in the end this view has long since played out in the failures of Bolshevism, and the crude idiocy of the consensus ideology it created.
I hope that LFM will help to broaden the basic viewpoint needed for radical change: it is a far broader and more useful set of perspectives. But the views of Harris are being heavily promoted by powerful forces in the background who want to reduce man to a computable unit of sociological mechanics, with a consciousness bounded by scientific definition. It is a threatening proposition because it could advance rapidly to a larger audience. But in the end like the older marxist brands it will peak and fall into confusion, the metaphysical confusion it pretends to dismiss.
