Michael Rectenwald on “Trigger Warnings, Safe Spaces, Bias Reporting: The New Micro-techniques of Surveillance and Control”
NYU professor Michael Rectenwald discusses his recent article “Trigger Warnings, Safe Spaces, Bias Reporting: The New Micro-techniques of Surveillance and Control.”
Has free speech and free thought been expelled from the American academy? Have universities today reached the point that “any perspective that deviates from this ‘academic’ orthodoxy – or any opposition expressed by faculty members in reasoned commentary or debate about the premises of the creed and/or its techniques – is virtually proscribed in advance” ? Does the official dogma of “diversity” serve to flatten out, if not actually crush, real diversity of perspectives?
We also discuss the rise of the Straussian neocons and other postmodernists, who believe that truth is whatever the powerful say it is. Are they right? Or is postmodernism just a symptom of civilizational decadence?
