I would have love it if you had discussed how he, Helen Pluckrose, and Peter Boghossian trolled social justice journals to show how they will buy into any perceived bullshit as long as the right catchphrases are used. Woke culture at the college level has destroyed the credibility of entire university departments, leading to metastasizing judgment against anyone that does not use woke language. Professors wanting tenure need to publish to receive it, and those three showed a chapter from Mein Kampf could be reproduced in a professional journal as long as woke language was repeated and predominant. Thanks for promoting this book, and consider interviewing Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying when their book comes out next year.
