Heather Mac Donald and Sally Satel spoke about their recent books on the real-world consequences of what they term bad ideas. Ms. MacDonald is the author of The Burden of Bad Ideas: How Modern Intellectuals Misshape Our Society, published by Ivan R. Dee. In her book and talk, she criticizes so-called cultural elites for advocating ideas that undermine the importance of personal responsibility and individual rights. Ms. Satel is the author of PC, M.D: How Political Correctness Is Corrupting Medicine, published by Basic Books. In her book and talk, Ms. Satel offered a number of anecdotes to illustrate her point that medical care is being compromised by the widespread preoccupation with “faddish” notions about race, gender, and class. close
