The Danger Of Campus Intolerance
A good deal has been written about political correctness and intolerance of opposing views on America's campuses.
The biggest threat in this phenomenon is that fact that although Intolerance is absolute and unchanging, the forms that it takes are mobile, flexible, and changing: what is left-wing intolerance this year becomes neo-nazi intolerance next year.
We have seen too much history of people changing political views in the middle of their lives not to recognize this.
Change is fine, as long as we change from a civilized point A to a civilized point B. If we allow barbaric point A mutate into barbaric points B, C, or D, we have left Pandora's baneful box open.
