Dark Web Intellectuals Feel Like Their Free Speech is Under Attack-Even Though They Are Super Successful - 2018-05-23
Sometimes you read an opening sentence and your hand instinctively moves to the nearest glass of wine, or if you are sober the nearest glass Diet Coke, because you are in for some shit. Take the opening paragraph of New York Times opinion author Bari Weiss in her piece "Meet the Renegades of the Intellectual Dark Web":
Here are some things that you will hear when you sit down to dinner with the vanguard of the Intellectual Dark Web: There are fundamental biological differences between men and women. Free speech is under siege. Identity politics is a toxic ideology that is tearing American society apart. And we're in a dangerous place if these ideas are considered "dark."
Weiss then goes on to talk about this collection League of Extraordinary Political Gentlemen made up of people like Ben Shapiro, Bret and Eric Weinstein (no relation to Harvey), Heather Heying, and Sam Harris.
