Eric Kaufmann - How Race Became Sacred


On this week’s episode of The Current Thing I am joined by Professor Eric Kaufmann to discuss his new book, Taboo: How Making Race Sacred Produced a Cultural Revolution.

Topics covered include:
-Why liberals are more to blame for woke than the radical left 
-The problem of 'cultural socialism'
-Why emotional taboos are the real source of woke 
-How race became a 'sacred' category, and why we need to change that 
-The future of free speech 
-How policy must be used to create a 'resilient, post-woke society'
and loads more!
