The best article I've read in a very long time. The new online guru bounces from one contrarian ideology to the next, picking up and shilling fads along the way. There's always a need to be special and in the know. The result is often a disaster.

Good article on a weird thing we've seen in some of the gurus we've covered (Russel Brand, James Lindsay) and a bunch we haven't (like Stefan Molyneux).
