The pleasures of pluralism, the pain of offence

The author has articulated very well what my husband would say if he could write like that. A very well written polemic against political policies relating to diversity and multi-culturalism. I fear though that what we have now is but the thin end of the wedge and 'free' speech is going to be very costly for some people in the future. Perhaps the root of the problem is the willingness of people to be offended?

I’ve saved the article to ‘Pocket’ thatbags as it looks interesting and I shall read it later today.
