Nick Cohen on how PC is devouring its own

nick-cohen-glassesI recommend this strong piece by Nick Cohen in Standpoint magazine out of Britain, on the downward spiral of the anti-free-speech movement.

Related: Three of my recent pieces on the state of free speech:

* On the German decision: Is Republishing Hitler’s Mein Kampf the Correct Decision? (Portuguese translation.)

* On censorship in British universities: Is Free Speech Dead in Universities? (Portuguese translation.)man-taped-mouth

* On politicized Islam: No Reformation for Islam, Please.

And from earlier, on the philosophical roots of attacks on free speech in the U.S. and elsewhere:

* Free Speech and Postmodernism: Why Group Warfare Has Replaced Academic Debate (and in Korean translation, German translation, and in Kindle e-book format.)

    Took time out of a busy schedule to read Nick Cohen’s article: breath-taking. It’s long and convoluted (for good reasons) but I urge everyone interested in the issue of free speech vs. political correctness to make time for it.
