How we lost free speech!

Scoopit!

An excellent article , in Adam’s opinion, from The Australian – How the West was lost for free speech, the thread is worth a read as well.

Rather than provide any extracts, Adam encourages people to read at least the article.

The thrust is that beginning with the Rushdie fatwa we have drifted into self censorship and denial of freedom of expression and consoled ourselves with the proposition that it is about not giving offence and tolerance of other cultures.

Take a look.

Given what we often see in New Zealand the article seemed quite apposite.
