Politically correct universities 'are killing free speech' - Telegraph
One would think that universities would be teaching that stifling debate can't be good for society going forward...
In the U.K. Telegraph, Javier Espinoza and Gordon Rayner recently reported on this:
"British universities have become too politically correct and are stifling free speech by banning anything that causes the least offence to anyone, a group of leading academics warns on Saturday. A whole generation of students is being denied the 'intellectual challenge of debating conflicting views' because self-censorship is turning campuses into over-sanitised 'safe spaces', they say."
