Rex Murphy, Canadian political commentator hits it out of the park. Indeed, freedom of speech is under assualt, and we have noone but ourselves to blame. Read this article. It's quite good!!!
"Indeed, at our universities, newspapers and broadcasters, we have seen an ever-shrinking defence of free speech, a timid reluctance to take on those who claim special privilege to shut down those they simply don't like.
