Book Review: Everyone Has Gone Mad…Except For Douglas Murray

The Madness of Crowds: Gender, Race And Identity is a rather in depth analysis of the nature of today’s political and social discourse by Douglas Murray.

Murray presents the view that the identity of those who make a particular argument has become more important than the actual point. He breaks down the debates surrounding race, gay, and transgender matters. It has been argued that it is too easy for people of differing opinions end up talking past each other instead of to each other, and Murray expresses some well documented reasons to why the current nature of political discussion has grown more toxic and unproductive.

The book discusses recent controversies that involve Kanye West expressing some support for Candace Owens, the Harvey Weinstein trial, and so much more. In fact, there is a lot more that is handled more deftly and eloquently than yours truly could manage at this time.
