I. FUCKING. LOVE. THIS. WEBSITE.
Let me draw an analogy. As I’ve said before, moral outrage epidemics are like watching polio & smallpox come back because of populist revolt against vaccines. Only, reality is what inoculates us against all the dangerous flavors of Utopianism. Trigger warnings kill herd immunity.
Holy crap: None of these cogs is actually turning or moving at all 😲
How to do Peak Woke Leftism (circa early 21st century)
1. Take something pretty much everyone is cool with
2. Tell them how it’s bad, actually
