Across the democratic West, politics has become deeply polarised and profoundly personal. And yet, if we look carefully at the most important ethical issues of the age the instinctive positions of both the Left and the Right are riven with contradictions. In Vexed James Mumford, asks 'Why should believing strongly about one topic mean the automatic adoption of so many others?’ Has freedom of speech become a cover for promoting prejudice? Has the concept of political correctness been weaponised and does white identity politics pose an urgent danger? These are some of the questions at the centre of Nesrine Malik's radical and compelling book We Need New Stories.
