The Dangerous Mix: Big Tech & Social Justice Ideology—Michael Rectenwald | American Thought Leaders
Just how did a self-professed communist become one of the most vocal critics of social justice, identity politics, and postmodernism?
This is American Thought Leaders 🇺🇸, and I’m Jan Jekielek.
Today we sit down with Dr. Michael Rectenwald, a former professor at New York University and author of “The Google Archipelago: The Digital Gulag and the Simulation of Freedom.”
This book actually shook me to my core. We discuss Dr. Rectenwald’s vision of how Big Tech, influenced by marxist and postmodernist thought, increasingly enables a toxic mix of censorship, surveillance, social engineering and “social justice” policies that in effect create a digital equivalent of the Soviet Gulag.
