Simon Chen (@simonbchen) is a medical pathologist whose family immigrated to Canada after witnessing the Tiananmen Square Massacre. Recently, he read an article in the New England Journal of Medicine by a white woman confessing her privilege and subtle acts of racism, and it eerily reminded him of the confession his grandfather wrote before being executed during China’s Cultural Revolution. We talk about the similarities between Mao’s movement and the radical strains of current progressivism, and speak about how to avoid repeating the worst parts of history.
