Wake Up

Piers Morgan

Overview

Why are we all so angry all the time? Be it feminists or religious fundamentalists, we are all becoming radicalized over our biased opinions and unvalidated claims of righteousness. What happened to the live-and-let-live policy, and when did freedom of expression become confused with hate speech?

Piers Morgan is an English journalist and broadcaster who has been a writer for tabloids like The Sun and the Daily Mirror, as well as the host of Piers Morgan Live. In Wake Up, Morgan takes a look at how largely symbolic media culture wars have overshadowed the very real problems the world faces.

Arguing that the coronavirus pandemic has opened the long-shut can of worms that has slowly been degrading us into an intolerant and angry society, this book calls on us to right our wrongs through unity and acceptance.
