I understand that these things feel normal and necessary to many holding strong progressive values, especially coming from colleges which are largely run along these norms today.

Google as shining light in the sea of darkness right?

But then, what do you propose to do about Googlers who are well within general norms of the country, and many other businesses like IBM, Oracle or whatever - but who do not agree with progressive consensus which is currently in effect in our internal discourse?

But I do not think there is consensus on the following things, which are treated as obvious and noncontroversial at Google.

"Those guys like to pretend that they're silenced and afraid, but they're not."Damore's treatise invited derision internally as well.

While it's hard to know how representative the views expressed below are of the company at large, they do illustrate that hostility toward Google's diversity efforts is not an isolated incident.
