"Engineers of the Soul"
Joel Kotkin, writing in City Journal, describes the bias of journalism, universities, and the entertainment industry. An excerpt:
Our cultural climate has become depressingly monochromatic. Award ceremonies, once a largely nonpolitical experience, have become reflecting pools for preening progressive artistes. Those emceeing the awards must be as politically pure as possible—sorry, Kevin Hart—and those winning acclaim get the best press if, besides thanking their producers and agents, they take a shot at Donald Trump.
