Why is the younger generation against free speech?

It’s bizarre, for anyone over 30, to see people such as Peter Tatchell, Stephen Fry and Germaine Greer being ostracised by the movements that they helped to create. Why are students ‘no platforming’ these people? In the latest case, with Tatchell, it was purely because he supported the principle of free speech. I offer some reasons why this trend might be happening, in a piece for Christian Today.

  1. Geez, you are a really good writer! I enjoyed this even more than the last one! Very astute observation on how right and wrong, to the next generation, is about belief and not action. And the evidence is there! No protests over serial killers, but plenty over gay rights.
