I have been publishing books since the early 1990s about the growing threat to American norms from academic leftism. But even I was shocked by the speed of the radical takeover of media and the publishing industry in the last few years. We have entered a new phase - as disturbing as it is predictable - in which dissenting liberals and nonconforming leftists are also being canceled due to insufficient wokeness. Soon the spectrum of acceptable opinion will be so narrow that large companies will have nothing left to publish. What's the solution? Simple: the supposedly liberal executives who run these corporations must stand up to their spoiled and coddled junior staff and uphold the liberal principles of free speech and diversity of opinion that they piously claim to uphold. As of now they are doing a terrible job.
