The Madness of Crowds

The Madness of Crowds:
Gender, Race and Identity

Published 2019
By Douglas Murray

Murray analyses the problems with identity politics / intersectionality, showing how the overreach of radical feminism, gay rights activism, transgenderism and anti-racism have transformed once real issues of concern into movements that seek to punish groups that do not adhere to their radical viewpoints. The ideas and behavior of these groups is not aimed at righting imbalance, but at exacting revenge for perceived inequalities in the past. He points out that much of the theory espoused in defense of these agendas lacks any foundation in science, but that fear of criticism by these groups has cowed many in almost all areas of society to adopt their language and practices.
