The Corruption of the Institutions

For the past few years, I have been fascinated by the relationship between ideology, bureaucracy, and power. In my view, the most important story in American life is the capture of the prestige institutions by left-wing activists, who have transmitted the ideologies of critical race theory and Queer Theory from the universities into every management structure in the country.

This week, there have been two news stories that have illustrated this theme with great drama. First, the unfolding narrative of Elon Musk’s takeover of Twitter, which has revealed tremendous ideological corruption in the domain of politics, speech, and tech. And second, the rise and fall of Sam Brinton, the Biden Administration’s non-binary nuclear waste administrator who became famous for publicly flaunting his kinks—and has since fallen from grace after allegedly fabricating his backstory and stealing women’s luggage from multiple airports.

I also discuss Cambridge Dictionary’s decision to redefine the word “woman” as “an adult who lives and identifies as female though they may have been said to have a different sex at birth”—or, in other words, to redefine woman as inclusive of men.
