CS Lewis's spiritual successors include Ben Stein and Jordan Peterson

Ben Stein made a self-help book called How To Ruin Your Life that almost beat for beat mirrors Screwtape letters in the framing of "rules for life except we recommend doing bad things instead of good things"

Jordy P's 12 rules for life also reflects screwtape letters in the context of "common-sense obvious statements told as though they were really insightful" as packaging for monstrous reactionary bullshit

@vegetablegremlin I can't stop seeing an image of Stein in a white dinner jacket going up to a woman and saying, It's Stein, Ben Stein, as she ignores him to talk to the furry on her other side at the bar.
