Neoskeptics is devoted to the discussion of public policy based on data that's available to the general public. First published in 2009, it adopts the same skeptical posture assumed by the original "neoconservatives" -- James Q. Wilson, Nathan Glazer, Daniel Patrick Moynihan, and Irving Kristol -- in the articles they published in their highly respected "Public Intrest" quarterly in the 70s and 80s. Although their critiques of the Liberal Establishment were energized by their conservative ideology, skepticism is neither conservative nor liberal. Skepticism questions all power because we skeptics know deep in our bones that things are seldom as simple as they appear to be, no matter who is in power. We therefore suggest that what distinguishes "neoskepticism" from traditional skepticism is our commitment to basing our policy critiques on data from public sources that can be freely shared with other neoskeptics.
