This is an Outrage Intervention. Outrage is one hell of a drug, and in this godforsaken age of internet rage, we are all addicted. Being outraged lets you take the moral high ground. It reaffirms your righteousness. It adds your name to the narrative. It says: "I am offended and therefore I am principled." It says: "I am woke." But by shouting about everything, we are in fact creating a world where outrage is without consequence. Politicians can avoid law reforms, newspapers can sidestep retractions, murderous police officers can evade prison sentences. If outrage is a currency, its value in plummeting. Traders are practically giving it away. This book is for anyone who has overspent their outrage or sold it on the cheap. It's for those of us who have been canceled or orchestrated a canceling. It's for anyone who's gotten high on indignation (and everyone who thinks they're already clean). And it's for those of us ready to take back anger's revolutionary power. We're going to need it.
