Contrarian Virtue

Kenneth Elzinga on Teaching Ec... How to Spend A Billion Dollars...
In case it's unclear, nothing in my analysis of conformity and virtue implies that I personally am especially virtuous.  The fact that I hold many unpopular views does however mean that my virtue is unusually easy to assess.  If you think my unpopular views are mostly true, or at least scrupulously argued, you should conclude that I'm an exceptionally virtuous person.  If you think my unpopular views are mostly false, or at least shoddily argued, you should conclude that I'm an exceptionally vicious person.  That is all.
