The Counter-Revolution is Growing

What we never hear about are the many more cases of those individuals who avoid cancellation because they've thoroughly internalized the approved words and practices that keep them out of the revoutionary dock. Show up at your diversity and inclusion seminar, ask no questions, say yes to the radicals, and signal your anti-racist outrage whenever the news cycle demands. Such protective measures become part of our new national consciousness, and the acquiesence of the disspirited managerial class has contributed to our notional sense of calm. What looks like comity is functionally subjugation.

- Abe Greenwald in "Yes, There Is a Counter-Revolution" (Commentary magazine, February 2022)
