A Gold Mine

In recent years, activists in the film and publishing worlds have tried to create a kind of moral monopoly over certain topics by maintaining that no one can speak about injustice that they haven’t experienced. Such injustice, in fact, now seems to be as carefully guarded as a financial asset — which, in some ways, it is.


This goes right to the heart of the issue. It’s “markets in everything,” including in every piece of wokester lunacy. Victim status is a good mine, and it only makes sense to stake out your claim and fend off interlopers.
