Description

The terms "woke" and "cancel culture" have become familiar. Some say intense awareness of minority rights has morphed into intolerance and censorship of anyone who thinks different. Others say it is a necessary re-balancing of a world of micro-aggressions and overt injustice.


Helen Pluckrose, author of "Cynical Theories: How Activist Scholarship Made Everything about Race, Gender, and Identity--And Why This Harms Everybody" tells Bloomberg Westminster its wrong to exclude those who have offensive views rather than debate with them.


Plus, Bloomberg's U.K. Politics and Brexit reporter Joe Mayes joins to discuss Boris Johnson's dilemmas on the lockdown and Brexit.
