CIS Australia: Where the Woke Things Are, with Lionel Shriver and Brendan O’Neill


July 22,2021

Although many thought the pandemic would be over by now, COVID-19 continues to rage across the world. Now, vaccine passports are being introduced in various jurisdictions and parts of the world are still in lockdown.

Add to this social unease, which continues to see people canceled for upsetting woke sensibilities, and athletes having decided to appoint themselves the moral arbiters of our time by doing everything from kneeling at the start of games to turning their back on their country’s flag.

Moderated by CIS research fellow Monica Wilkie. Lionel Shriver is an American best-selling author; commentator for the Spectator, and our 2018 John-Bonython Lecturer. Brendan O’Neill is the editor of Spiked Online and has been one of the most consistent and fiercest critics of lockdowns.
