CIS Aus: Lionel Shriver: Identity Politics, Political Correctness and #MeToo

08/12/2019

Well worth listening to, this lecture is very good

 

Award winning American author and opinion writer Lionel Shriver delivered this year’s JBL lecture. She eviscerated the modern-day obsession with identity politics, political correctness and the hypersensitivities of the #MeToo movement that are threatening creativity.

The John Bonython Lecture is the annual Gala event for the Centre for Independent Studies. Designed to advance the principles of free choice, individual liberty, defend cultural freedom and the open exchange of ideas – this year’s lecture was no different.

Shriver’s breakout novel We Need to Talk About Kevin has sold over 1 million copies and was made into a feature film starring Tilda Swinton.
