"Conformity is so well marketed that it has become the moral compass of the modern era. In The 14 Plagues of Modern Conformity…and how assholes battle them, TR Perri exposes the modern iteration of the longstanding war between individuals and conformity. His ability to identify the well-hidden elements of conformity sets him apart as an intellectual. This timely book addresses: • How relativism enabled Brock Turner to receive a 3 month sentence for raping an unconscious woman behind a dumpster. • The statistical increase in people who believe that personal offense is an arrestable, or at least a fineable, matter. • How student activists have become emboldened to use domestic terrorism tactics. • Why the Catholic Church only moved child rapist John Geoghan from parish to parish instead of defrocking him, amidst a host of allegations starting back in the 1960’s. Separately, the plagues are simple, irrational devices, but in aggregate they hoodwink a culture into reducing humankind into two groups: those who conform and therefore “get it,” and those who “don’t.” Assholes refuse to conform and are placed in the latter group, but they may not be the monolithic villains they’re made out to be. In this unrelenting exposure of modern mores, Perri reveals a special type of asshole—the positive asshole—and how they may be just what humankind needs to finally abandon conformity, willingly."
