George Packer, writing at The Atlantic:

During the past decade, politics has intruded on daily American life more than at any time since the 1960s; in the same period, technology has given a microphone or printing press to anyone with an internet connection. The result is the feeling that everyone should say something whenever anything happens.

The Harpers cancel culture letter was ridiculous, but I agree with him on this particular point.
