I really dislike political correctness. If you happen to have drunk the PC Kool-Aid, please read no further.
Years ago, I was an undergrad in one of the first colleges to be involved in the whole stupid politically correct rubbish. I was right there in the thick of it, when all that nonsense started. In one class, we were asked to do a mock interview. To warm things up a bit, we were requested to joke about something, only to realize that the joke part was a trick question. The instructor, a complete idiot in my mind, said she hated jokes. No, not just for the purpose of the mock interview, but she hated jokes overall, since they always end up offending somebody. At the time, I thought, what a sad way to live one’s life. Now, we have an entire generation of college students, who are just like her. They cannot seem to find humor in anything and get offended by the smallest thing. This is why some comedians such as Seinfeld and Chris Rock, now refuse to perform in colleges. Everything is labeled racist, sexist, prejudice, you name it.
For me, this book was hilarious and insightful, but it’s also obscene, and so I cannot recommend it to anyone. No. Not a single soul. Those who need to read it probably won’t. Everyone will eventually find something in this book that they will find offensive.
My favorite quote:
“If you’re really sincere about the idea that diversity is a good thing, you need to quit insisting that everyone should THINK exactly like you do. Unanimity of thought—especially when it’s enforced through speech codes and laws that restrict and criminalize ideological dissent—is not tolerance, it’s totalitarianism. Tolerating different ideas is the most important form of tolerance.”
But anyway, I just wanted to be the first one to write a review. Very few writers can snark like Goad can. I'm a huge fan!
While Goad was once a lone evangelist calling out in the wilderness, he is now almost drowned out by a cacophony of imitators and fair-weather acolytes arguing with hordes of dismissive #metoo bots and their shrill harpy masters perched on the walls of academia. Some of us remember that Goad and a few henchmen were the ones who foresaw this decades ago.
Anyone ever seen the movie, "They Live"? This is like putting on the sunglasses, and after you put them on, it's hard to ignore what's really going on. That's a good and bad thing. Everyone thinks you're nuts. 5 stars.
