Free Speech

UK: The Guardian: “Free Speech Isn’t Under Assault, But Some Speech Should Be Shut Down…….




Free speech isn’t under threat. It just suits bigots and boors to suggest so




Free speech advocates also misunderstand the motivation of those who might want to shut down a debate: they see this as a surefire mark of intolerance. But some debates should be shut down. For public dialogue to make any progress, it is important to recognise when a particular debate has been won and leave it there.
