The New Puritans: How the religion of social justice captured the western world

The Puritans of the seventeenth century sought to refashion society in accordance with their own beliefs, but they were deep thinkers who were aware of their own fallibility. In The New Puritans: how the religion of social justice captured the Western world, Andrew Doyle examines the underlying belief-systems of this ideology. How has it risen so rapidly to dominate all major political, cultural and corporate institutions? Do we need a better understanding of where these new puritans came from and what they hope to achieve? Can we – as Doyle urges – develop a spirit of optimism in making the case for the reinstatement of liberal values? Speakers: Andrew Doyle -presenter, Free Speech Nation, GB News; writer and comedian; author, The New Puritans: how the religion of social justice captured the Western world and Free Speech and Why It Matters Professor Frank Furedi – sociologist and social commentator; author, The Road to Ukraine: how the West lost its way and 100 Years of Identity Crisis: culture war over socialisation
