A chance to discuss what is unfolding before our very eyes: The tearing down of civil society, the mindless trashing of history, the repulsive rhetoric and conduct, the purge of wrongthinkers in academia and the workplace.
Listen to this article
On Sunday, June 28, at 8 p.m. Eastern, we will be holding our fourth online virtual event: The Ongoing Cultural Purge.
I will speak for “a while” about many of the things we have been witnessing: the tearing down of civil society, the mindless trashing of history, the repulsive rhetoric and conduct, the purge of wrongthinkers in academia and the workplace. Then we will turn to Q&A.
This is a livestream via Facebook (and possibly YouTube also), and will be live on our website as well. You will be able to ask questions either throught the Facebook ‘chat’ feature or in the comment section. You also can submit questions in advance in the comment section to this post.
We will share the Facebook link via the newsletter on Sunday (sign up here), and you also can come to the website.
