Yes, I concur — I am fascinated with the invective this man has attracted having, until I discovered Medium, never actually read or heard him! I was genuinely puzzled after reading an article about him being “alt-right” to find out the medium to soft left in the UK (where I am) like him. I had to check it was the same guy!! It seems he is accused of being a fake academic (however, he seems to have genuinely contributed to personality theory as a psychologist, taught at Harvard and has a genuine tenure) and his criticism of the Canadian code is well founded — you can be arrested in Canada for reading in public certain biblical passages now deemed “hate speak”.
