I was reading some of Angela Nagle‘s essays online, and reviews of her book Kill All Normies. She’s a fascinating and incisive writer, and in this book she takes a hard look at online cultures, social movements emerging online, the herd mentality in online interactions. She points out that the liberal left has drifted to become prudish, easily offended, anti-free speech and even anti-intellectual. The locus of irreverent, subversive, and playful thinking is now the alt-right, or apolitical online spaces of dubious reputation.
The book has generated a storm of debate.
So I hopped it over to 4chan, and specifically the /pol/ section, which declares it is intended for politically incorrect discussions.
