Reviewing the new book, The Rise of the New Puritans, for Law & Liberty, Daniel N. Gullotta considers the evidence linking today’s online woke scolds with their predecessors from The Scarlet Letter days. “Examples of this new Puritanism…are as frightening as they are funny, and troublingly frequent,” he reports.

Rosie Gray investigates Gen Z’s surprising infatuation with Unabomber Ted Kaczynski and his Luddite, anti-technology ideology. “Surrounded by screens from early childhood, addicted to near-constant media consumption, often lacking basic in-person social skills, many sense a broader problem in their own individual capture by the tech borg,” she writes.

Sebastian Milbank reflects in The Critic on the carefully curated role played by her family in modern Britain; one that now appears invulnerable because, rather than in spite, of its own powerlessness.
