My run-in with the New York Times | The Spectator

My run-in with the New York Times | The Spectator

It’s never a good sign when you’re watching a scene of street terror in yet another gut-churning YouTube video and you find yourself thinking: ‘Hang on a minute, that’s around the corner from my apartment!’ But there’s a now infamous video from last week where a mob of enraged millennials with their fists pumped in the air surrounded a lone young woman sitting outside a Washington restaurant where I often eat. Like a scene from the Cultural Revolution, the crowd demanded she shout certain slogans and raise her clenched fist in solidarity — or be damned as a racist. Most of her fellow diners...

Andrew Sullivan: See You Next Friday

Andrew Sullivan: See You Next Friday

The good news is that my last column in this space is not about “cancel culture.” Well, almost. I agree with some of the critics that it’s a little nuts to say I’ve just been “canceled,” sent into oblivion and exile for some alleged sin. I haven’t. I’m just no longer going to be writing for a magazine that has every right to hire and fire anyone it wants when it comes to the content of what it wants to publish. The quality of my work does not appear to be the problem. I have a long essay in the coming print magazine on how plagues change societies, after all. I have written some of the...

The Dish is back!

The Dish is back!

SubscribeSince I closed down the Dish, my bloggy website, five years ago, after fifteen years of daily blogging, I have not missed the insane work-hours that all but broke my health. But here’s what I do truly and deeply miss: writing freely without being in a defensive crouch; airing tough, smart dissent and engaging with readers in a substantive, challenging way that avoids Twitter madness; a truly free intellectual space where anything, yes anything, can be debated without personal abuse or questioning of motives; and where readers can force me to change my mind by sheer logic or...

Andrew Sullivan: You Say You Want a Revolution?

Andrew Sullivan: You Say You Want a Revolution?

Please read our updated and , effective on December 19, 2019.CLOSEOne of the things you know if you were brought up as a Catholic in a Protestant country, as I was, is how the attempted extirpation of England’s historic Catholic faith was enforced not just by executions, imprisonments, and public burnings but also by the destruction of monuments, statues, artifacts, paintings, buildings, and sacred sculptures. The shift in consciousness that the religious revolution required could not be sustained by words or terror alone. The new regime — an early pre-totalitarian revolution imposed from...

Andrew Sullivan: Is There Still Room for Debate?

Andrew Sullivan: Is There Still Room for Debate?

Please read our updated and , effective on December 19, 2019.CLOSEIn the last couple of weeks, as the purges of alleged racists have intensified in every sphere, and as so many corporations, associations, and all manner of civic institutions have openly pledged allegiance to anti-racism, with all the workshops, books, and lectures that come with it, I’m reminded of a Václav Havel , “The Power of the Powerless.”It’s about the dilemma of living in a world where adherence to a particular ideology becomes mandatory. In Communist Czechoslovakia, this orthodoxy, with its tired slogans, and abuse...

Andrew Sullivan: We All Live on Campus Now

Andrew Sullivan: We All Live on Campus Now

Please read our updated and , effective on December 19, 2019.CLOSEOver the last year, the most common rebuttal to my intermittent coverage of campus culture has been: Why does it matter? These are students, after all. They’ll grow up once they leave their cloistered, neo-Marxist safe spaces. The real world isn’t like that. You’re exaggerating anyway. And so on. I certainly see the point. In the world beyond campus, few people use the term microaggressions without irony or an eye roll; claims of “white supremacy,” “rape culture,” or “white privilege” can seem like mere rhetorical flourishes;...

Andrew Sullivan: By Biden’s Own Standards, He Is Guilty As Charged

Andrew Sullivan: By Biden’s Own Standards, He Is Guilty As Charged

Please read our updated and , effective on December 19, 2019.CLOSELike most people, I cannot know for sure what actually happened between Joe Biden and Tara Reade many, many moons ago, or, for that matter, what may have once transpired between Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford. No one knows for sure but the individuals (and/or eyewitnesses) themselves, and memories of long-ago encounters may not be sharp — or may become vivid in one person’s recollection and utterly vague in another’s. If I were asked to detail an incident that happened a quarter-century ago, absent serious trauma,...

Andrew Sullivan: The Coronavirus Doesn’t Have a Social Message

Andrew Sullivan: The Coronavirus Doesn’t Have a Social Message

Please read our updated and , effective on December 19, 2019.CLOSEMost plagues have had scapegoats. There seems to be something deep, deep, deep in human nature that responds to existential threats like this one by seeking to blame someone else, or some other group, or even an errant individual. The most intense example of this in history is the Black Death. It was the occasion for a spasm of pathological and eliminationist anti-Semitism that surpassed anything that had happened in Europe before — laying the basis for a future Holocaust. More poignantly, when smallpox arrived with Europeans...

Trump’s Presidency Isn’t a Dark Comedy — It’s an Absurd Tragedy

Trump’s Presidency Isn’t a Dark Comedy — It’s an Absurd Tragedy

Please read our updated and , effective on December 19, 2019.CLOSEThe idea that Donald J. Trump is a president best defined by his weakness has always carried a kind of knowing, world-weary authority. It’s basically the Washington Republican response when you’re freaking out about Trump’s incessant power grabs. Calm down, they tell us; he’s not really effective; he’s a shiny object to keep non-college-educated whites in the GOP’s grip; we’re still having elections; he’s only behaving like presidents before Watergate; the economy is fine; he’s more in touch with America than the rest of you....
