    1. Just about as false as one can get, this book actually has the audacity to celebrate Columbus' travels to the New World as a "multicultural" journey. These two dimwit authors, who have a politically charged agenda that could not be any more overt and misinformed, try and convince the reader that Columbus celebrated the individuality of the native Taino, who they call "noble savages," without the quotes. But Columbus is soured when he comes across their mortal enemy (punchline: they're NOT referr [...]

    2. “The Diversity Myth” is a twenty-year-old book that nobody would remember, despite its many virtues, were it not for that its authors (and many of the young figures in its pages) have since then become highly-visible billionaires, and, in the case of Peter Thiel, prominent public intellectuals. None of them knew that then, though (presumably!), which makes the book even more interesting.And everything old is new again. This book has, since I started writing this review, taken on new relevanc [...]

    3. A few weeks ago, there was a salacious cover story published in Stanford Politics titled How Peter Thiel and the Stanford Review Built a Silicon Valley Empire. The piece began carefully, focusing on Thiel’s ongoing involvement with the newspaper with necessary backstory.

I wondered why this merited a cover story, but then recalled that Peter Thiel (and, by association, the newspaper he started) had conse [...]

    4. Not as bad as expectedThis book came up sometime last year in the heat of the 2016 campaign, when Peter Thiel (cofounder of PayPal, and co-author with David Sacks) came out in support of Trump. The way you'd hear it described, it was racist and everything wrong with white males in America. Not quite. While I don't agree with a lot of the conclusions Thiel and Sacks draw from the "multicultural experiment" at Stanford, they quite accurately pointed out some hypocrisy in it. While "Hey ho!

    5. Published in 1998, by two Stanford graduates. This book exposes the real impact of multiculturalism on the institution most closely identified with the politically correct decline of higher education—Stanford University. The book review on is quite interesting. Not like the review when I first encounter in "Move Fast and Break Things: How Facebook, Google, and Cornered Culture and Undermined Democracy", which is quite negative.
