Links: Drugs ought to be legalized, epistemology, The Case Against Education, homes for humans, and more!

* “Against the Demonization of Drugs.” Again, this ought to be obvious.

* Behind the Beautiful Forevers by Katherine Boo is an amazing, highly recommended book.

* “Why Are Conservatives More Susceptible to Believing Lies?“, although I’d like to see more about “are they?” beforehand.

* Bryan Caplan’s next book, The Case Against Education, is available for pre-order here. I’ve been looking forward to it for years.

* “‘Homes for human beings’: Millennial-driven anti-NIMBY movement is winning with a simple message.” Good.

* “Mind the gap:” a long, riveting story about how land-use policy scuppered new businesses.

* “How One Las Vegas ED Saved Hundreds of Lives After the Worst Mass Shooting in U.S. History.”

* “Shades of Greene:” Zadie Smith on Graham Greene.

* “Students are leading the assault on free speech — and faculty members and administrators are enabling them.”

* “Why dating is drudgery;” note that the article is in The New Yorker and thus better than its headline may imply.

* “Outbreak: Our Next Global Pandemic.” Be scared.
