"Today's liberal is tomorrow's perfect slave." That was a quote from Stephen on Twitter in response to today's discussion on college students.
To say it is deeply disturbing to watch the future decision makers of this country display a total lack of rational thought is putting it mildly. Gone are the days when our halls of higher learning were filled with men of character, and young men and women were challenged to question their beliefs.
These days if you try to suggest a student look at an issue like race from another perspective you're labeled a racist, or a bigot and the student being challenged is likely to complain about feeling "unsafe" before demand a "safe space" where they can hold whatever view they like without the risk of logic being introduced.
If we need to see where this leads we need only look across the pond to Germany where police recently raided the houses of 10 people suspected of using "hate speech" on social media.
This is not an uplifting episode, but it's one you need to hear. Listen now.
