A panel on identity politics and cancel culture at the recent Plebity conference, featuring myself, Amna Khalid and Jeff Snyder

It's ironic how the intellectual left adopts the least intellectual behavior -- to think one's beliefs are whole, complete, and perfect. Those who believe this, do not have to reflect, self critique, listen to others, modify, or amend their thoughts. They allow their egos to hide their imperfection, at the expense of further intellectual growth.
The corollary is, unmoderated confidence in one's thoughts varies inversely with the quality and depth of those thoughts.
The Leftwaffe voted for this, and now you're getting it good and hard.
Reconnecting with material conditions.. real intersectionality.. yes!
