For his Substack, Freddie deBoer argues that there is a stark asymmetry between the dialogue on the Left and Right of the political spectrum. He believes that, privately, many people (and corporations) on the Left are not as ideologically extreme as they present themselves, but fear the repercussions they might face for publicly deviating from illiberal orthodoxies.


deBoer believes that “the left-of-center is in a profoundly strange and deeply unhealthy place” due to the rise of a “linguistically-radical but substantively-conservative” form of identity-based politics that has spilled out of elite university humanities departments and infected social media, entertainment industries, non-profits, and even government entities.
