Popular YouTube political/cultural vlogger Sargon of Akkad is the (infinitely more popular) video equivalent of this blog in seeking to sound the alarm as universities and students’ unions fall under the spell of the Cult of Identity Politics.
Readers who do not already do so should consider following his YouTube channel.
At present, Sargon of Akkad (real name Carl Benjamin) is drumming up support for a petition to end social justice courses being taught as legitimate academic subjects at university. Those who are interested can sign it here.
In the video shown above, Benjamin makes an entertaining (and cathartic) case that the social justice / identity politics community is little more than a cult, the majority of whose complaints bear little resemblance to reality and whose philosophy is not deserving of the official imprimatur of the academy.
