It’s very easy to become a totalitarian pig. Most people carry the seed inside and have to make specific efforts not to let it grow.
Here’s an example. Yashar Ali, who used to be a real journalist and a serious person, spent the day trying to cancel a colleague for an ancient Halloween costume she had worn when she was a 23-year-old kid. She dressed as Amy Winehouse, and Ali dug out the photo on MySpace (remember MySpace?) and accused the colleague of cultural appropriation.
I’ll let everybody guess which culture he thought the Winehouse costume represented.
