Skeptic Michael Shermer’s razor sharp analysis is just what the doctor ordered for our perilous trip through COVID-land. He is one of the country’s most important thinkers, refusing the lazy swell of groupthink and narrative stitching. Shermer’s thoughts on everything from the dangerous assaults on free speech to agenda-driven “fact-checking” are like a breath of fresh air blowing away the toxic storms that have overtaken current political life. His new book, Giving the Devil his Due is a brave argument for permitting even the worst of us, to have their say. It is published by Cambridge University Press.
