Free Speech and Hate Speech

This would be stronger if it had even one example of someone being silenced by hate speech; perhaps such examples are available in the links. Something concrete, a story.

It would also be stronger if the illustration of hate speech (“you are subhuman…”) were not such a caricature; I don’t know of any major campus demonstrations aimed at shutting down someone saying something like this. Instead, it’s much more subtle (as you recognise later on in the piece).

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
