In his book and Sunday Times Bestseller, The Madness of Crowds Douglas Murray sets out to explain why societies are now so characterised by conflict. In public and in private, both online and off, people are behaving in ways that are increasingly irrational, feverish, herd-like and simply unpleasant.
Murray investigates the dangers of ‘woke’ culture and the rise of identity politics. In lively, razor-sharp prose he examines the most controversial issues of our moment: sexuality, gender, technology and race, with interludes on the Marxist foundations of ‘wokeness’, the impact of tech and how, in an increasingly online culture, we must relearn the ability to forgive.
One of the few writers who dares to counter the prevailing view and question the dramatic changes in our society – from gender reassignment for children to the impact of transgender rights on women – Murray’s penetrating book clears a path of sanity through the fog of our modern predicament.
Douglas Murray describes in his book, “the interpretation of the world through the lens of social justice, identity group politics and intersectionalism . . . the most audacious and comprehensive effort since the end of the Cold War at creating a new ideology”.
In this interview with Peter Robinson from Stanford’s Hoover Institution, Douglas Murray also discusses European politics, examines Boris Johnson’s tenure as UK prime minister, and take a sobering look at American politics from the perspective of a very sharp observer.
