Welcome to the Woke Trials: How #Identity Killed Progressive Politics

(Inbunden)

Beskrivning:

In 2013, Julie Burchill wrote a mischievous piece in the Observer to defend her friend Suzanne Moore. Burchill had not anticipated the vitriolic reaction that her words would provoke. She was pursued by the outrage mob, and there were even calls in the British House of Commons for her to be fired from her job. After that, Burchill - now known as "the dark star of Fleet Street" - was lucky to be writing blog pieces for loose change. Welcome to the Woke Trials is part-memoir and part-indictment of what happened to Julie Burchill between then and now, as the regiments of the woke took over journalism. It is also a characteristically irreverent and entertaining analysis of the key elements of a continuing and disturbing phenomenon - all told with the common touch and rampant vulgarity that has made Burchill a household name. Raised in a communist household and a lifelong Labour Party voter, Burchill also makes the case for a progressive future politics, a time when we see ourselves as a common humanity with similar hopes and dreams rather than a childish world of villains and victims. As she argues, the day we awake from our sleepwalking cannot come too soon.
