Virtue signals in the moral maze

It's only fair to share...Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on Pinterest

On BBC Radio Four’s Moral Maze, we tackled “virtue signalling” – the practice of publicly expressing opinions or sentiments intended to demonstrate our good character or the moral correctness of our beliefs. I argued that this wasn’t virtuous at all, since the poses being struck were designed to demonise and silence those with opposing views. I also tried to suggest that those who defended western or European national identity were demonised by “virtue signallers” who smeared them all as white nationalists – simply because western national identity was historically white. I didn’t get the opportunity to explain this fully and so was promptly misunderstood… You can join me battling through the Maze here.
