Prune by alkjash (LW 2.0) – People’s filters on their babble are far too strong. In particular the early filters (What you think consciously, what you speak, what you write down) eliminate all but a trickle of babble. Specific mental techniques to weaken the gates.

Admit Many Disagree With Us by Robin Hanson – “It is only by seeing that substantial if not overwhelming evidence is available for similar claims covering a great many areas of life that each claim can become plausible enough that modest evidence sufficient can make these conclusions believable. That is, there’s an intellectual contribution to make by arguing together for a large set of related contrarian-to-experts claims. This is what I suggest is original about our book.”
