Bear with me for a moment as I endeavor to justify an act of self-promotion. As many readers may recall, Mary Katharine Ham and I co-authored a book entitled End of Discussion in 2015. It was published the week prior to Donald Trump announcing his presidential campaign, which quickly caught fire among a large segment of GOP primary voters. The rest, as they say, is history. In accordance with the federal law* requiring that all conservative-leaning books have lengthy subtitles, our secondary bit was, “How the Left’s Outrage Industry Shuts Down Debate, Manipulates Voters and Makes America Less Free (and Fun!)” At its core, End of Discussion is an expose and critique of the Left’s increasing reliance on moral bullying — wherein they seek to “win” social and political debates by preventing them from happening. The idea is to impugn motives and disqualify people based out of hand, negating any need for further discourse.
