Cathy Young joins me to talk about free speech, injustice taking place in left-leaning social justice circles, authoritarianism on the right, civility, and responsible use of social media.
We also discuss political divisions, the danger of identity politics, and the intellectual dark web. She also questions popular movements including feminism and Black Lives Matter highlighting many flaws where activism and ideology go wrong.
