The Love Actually test

This is shamelessly stolen from a blog I am particularly enjoying at the moment (wronging rights - read their recent commentary on the US "conflict minerals legislation" and the Congo especially). The Love Actually bit is explained at the bottom. Basically, the post deals with that classic and infinitely frustrating response that comes up in so many debates: "Well, if you don't like what we're suggesting, tell us your better idea". Amanda's test of validity? "Is enacting this policy more likely to reduce suffering and end conflict than staying in to watch Love Actually again?" Here, here!
