    I'm hearing rumors about this new czar. I know he was a Harvard Professor. I found his wiki page. However i'm hearing some other stuff about him that concerns me, i'm trying to find more information about it though.

    I hear he likes behavioral economics and that he is fond of the government trying to use psychology to control our economic habits.

    Supposedly he is also ok with individual posters, such as those of us on this forum, being able to be sued by people over what we may say. I also heard he wants to hold those that host message boards accountable to what the posters in the forum say. Opening up the doors to sue for liable for anyone posting or hosting one of these forums.

    These claims i heard bother me and before I jump off the bridge bitching about it I would like to get some more info. I'm reasearching the man now and hope some of the Liberals and Conservatives will join me so i get a FULL picture of who this power weilding CZAR is.

    I'm still trying to learn more about him also, and the more I read the more concerned I become about him being involved in government. Much of what he purports is "interesting" at best and sheer lunacy at worst. And this guy is supposed to be a highly regarded contitutional lawyer. That's scary.

    For all the bitching about "czars", most of the positions people are bitching about are positions that have existed for years.

    I'm not bitching about there being CZARS i'm just trying to find out more information about this czar as I heard some sketchy 1984 style stuff about him.

    I'm trying to verify or disprove what I heard, do you want to help or troll?

    It seems like a talking out of both sides of your mouth statement here. I could be wrong.
