Phew. I’ve finally finished something I consider to be pretty close to my manifesto. It connects the alt-right’s actions during GamerGate and Trump’s election and Charlottesville, discussing the way that they shift paradigms by waging an all out assault on our norms of right and wrong by attacking our sense of humor.
My instinct is to continue to edit this until it’s perfect and unassailable, but I think the way we respond to the alt-right will be one of the fundamental issues facing our generation, and there’s no time to waste. I’m constantly tweaking my opinion on the matter, but this is probably the closest I’ll come to putting it down on paper fully.
Irony is Dead – The Alt-Right Has Killed It
Stay tuned for Pt. 2 (my proposed solution) later in the week.
