This meeting was a lot of fun, even with just 5 of us.
The article "Is Patriotism a Virtue?" by MacIntyre is here:
It was published in 1984. The part I was talking about is just the very last page (p. 228 here).
Jonathan Haidt will be interviewed on Philosophy Talk on Sunday, March 10, to talk about THE RIGHTEOUS MIND. Since it doesn't say this show was pre-recorded, I assume it will be a live call-in show.

BTW, several articles I brought and briefly shared around might be of interest. First, Jonah Lehrer wrote "Why Smart People Are Stupid" for the New Yorker last June (http://nyr.kr/10f6k43), which is pretty amusing.
The journal article it refers to is "Cognitive sophistication does not attenuate the bias blind spot" (http://bit.ly/Vfscj7), which, as Lehrer points out, "intelligence seems to make things worse" and "those more likely to engage in deliberation were slightly more vulnerable to common mental mistakes".
The mildly dumbed-down SciAmMind article had that small selection of questions exploring various flaws in rationality. It is at http://bit.ly/10f79d7.

Because of its decoupling from context, the reading may at times be hard to understand for those of us with suboptimal reasoning ability. So if you want to see details about the particular experiments on which these ideas are grounded, I recommend Stanovich's 2003 paper, "The Fundamental Computational Biases of Human Cognition: Heuristics that (Sometimes) Impair Decision Making and Problem Solving"
