"The Warlock Hunt"

Amid the wave of sexual harassment allegations, Claire Berlinski has written a very important essay in The American Interest. An excerpt:

We should certainly realize by now that a moral panic mixed with an internet mob is a menace. When the mob descends on a target of prominence, it’s as good as a death sentence, socially and professionally. None of us lead lives so faultless that we cannot be targeted this way. “Show me the man, and I’ll show you the crime.”
