Cancel Culture: Retail vs. Wholesale
When my stomach can take it, which is rarely, I take a look at Marginal Revolution. Tuning in today, I see Cowen predicting that the intellectual right will become much more open to deviations in the future -- as long as all agree in being anti-leftist. And the latter involves, of course, the condemnation ad nauseam of "Cancel Culture." Look I don't like this retail stuff they go on about either, but isn't it rich to hear the GMU crowd, using Koch money and the influence it buys to keep the groves of their Academy quite free of any left-wing ideas --wholesale Cancel culture, that --making the case!
