Chuck Klosterman Discusses Being The New Ethicist

In case you missed the big news, Chuck Klosterman is the New York Times Magazine’s new Ethicist. Klosterman spoke to Poynter about the task that lies ahead, and judging by his remarks, he seems to have the right frame of mind for the job. Below are two choice quotes from the interview.

On being an authority on ethics:

I mean, who is indisputably qualified to tell other adults how to live? My view is that a given person creates an abstract framework for how to exist, and then he (or she) places tangible problems into that framework to see how they fit… I’m qualified because I’m alive and I’m engaged with the world.

On the haters:

The Internet rewards obsession. In any form of public life, there will always be some people who love you too much and some people who hate you too much. The key is accepting that none of it is real.
