Political correctness, nihilism, radical equality, Social Justice Warriors, identity politics, demonization, personal attacks, emotional appeals, tamper tantrums, triggerings and safe spaces, the Alt-Right and the Alt-Left...what does it all mean? It's part of a study everyone needs to get acquainted with: social psychology (or social pathology, if you wish).

UPDATE: While sexual attacks on women are something every right minded person rejects, the philosophical abandon behind the MeToo movement is potentially devastating. Just how corrosive it is, has become apparent in the Left fighting to stave off the life-time appointment of the Catholic, originalist Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the US Supreme Court. Two pillars of Western culture are thereby under a two pronged attack by the MeToos. First, the epistemological underpinning is under fire, that truth is universal and independent of the person speaking it. But in the MeToo universe, truth is associated with gender: women are basically right, while men are principally wrong. Which is ludicrous on its face and another demonstration of the postmodern war on basic axioms. But that is only the preliminary stage of the MeToo assault.
