What Happened to Me?

How does an educated person end up broadcasting socially unacceptable views? In matters of multiculturalism, immigration, and race relations, standard answers to this question aver psychiatric disorder or social maladjustment. Yet, I have never been diagnosed with the former, nor ever fulfilled the criteria for the latter: my parents are both intelligent White-collar professionals, retired after successful and remunerative careers; they are both in a happy marriage of 42 years’ standing; all three of us completed higher education, lived in various countries, experienced different cultures, learnt several languages, and have kept ourselves well read and well informed. Fellow TOO contributors of my acquaintance are not vastly different from me: Kevin MacDonald is a university professor; Tomislav Sunic is a former diplomat; Elizabeth Whitcombe is a financial analyst with an MIT degree in economics; Greg Johnson is a publisher, with a doctorate in philosophy.
What happened to them?
