Then he’ll go into a diatribe about how people should simply follow orders when they’re being arrested like he’s completely oblivious to the fact that an arrest is absolutely financially devastating for most of the people you see being arrested on youtube. Or he’s wildly perplexed at how anyone could defend looting or arson. I’m not saying he’s just expressing his opposition to these things but it’s that he’s seemingly entirely incapable of seeing it from the perspective of someone who’s just ****ing furious because they’ve been poor and disenfranchised their entire life. Even like Tucker Carlson has some awareness of how the other side thinks even if he thinks it’s stupid and abhorrent he’s not entirely oblivious to that which he disagrees. But Sam Harris thinks he’s deeply empathetic, or at least compassionate, but in fact he’s completely isolated in an intellectual bubble of extreme privilege. And again I’m not calling him out on being privileged or even enjoying it but the contrast between what he thinks he can see and what he actually sees is something to behold.
Bubble of privilege is right

he talks like someone who hasn't seen any real adversity in his entire life

That’s a more succinct way of saying it.

He grew up super rich with a famous television producer for a mother and it shows. Mom and Pop scholarship to Stanford with lots of international travel thrown in.
