The infuriating thing is that I think there might be. We could write articles acknowledging that certain conversations can exacerbate crippling guilt and self-loathing, particularly for people with anxiety, depression, or other mental illnesses that make them fixate on their own perceived worthlessness. We could really, truly, not-just-lip-service integrate concern for those people into our activism. We could acknowledge how common this experience is and have resources to help people. We could stop misidentifying anguish as entitlement, and stop acting like anguish that does have entitlement at its root is deserved or desirable or hilarious.
Damore wrote an article that said that he felt his work environment was hostile to his political beliefs, outlined why he was critical of Google's policies and practices, justified his ideas in terms of the good of Google (aka Google's bottom line), and had the misfortune to have the article to go public. It generated bad press for Google, and bad feelings among Google employees. One of his complaints was essentially that he was not allowed to express political ideas that annoyed the majority. Why is it a surprise that he was terminated. A public company is not the appropriate place to express your political views in opposition to others whether you are in the majority or the minority, left or right.
The FBI also used illegal undercover operations to harass and disrupt Communist and other dissident political groups. In 1956, Hoover was becoming increasingly frustrated by Supreme Court decisions that limited the Justice Department's ability to prosecute Communists. At this time he formalized a covert "dirty tricks" program under the name COINTELPRO.  COINTELPRO actions included planting forged documents to create the suspicion that a key person was an FBI informer, spreading rumors through anonymous letters, leaking information to the press, calling for IRS audits, and the like. The COINTELPRO program remained in operation until 1971.
