Description


When you hear that now ubiquitous phrase I find that offensive, you know you're being told to shut up. Social discourse is now dominated by competitive offence-claiming. But how did we become so thin-skinned? This book blames three culprits: official multiculturalism's relativistic conflation of tolerance with positive recognition, narcissistic identity politics, and finally therapeutic educational interventions such as anti-bullying campaigns.

Claire Fox is a British libertarian writer. She is the founder of the Institute of Ideas think tank and a broadcaster and social commentator, appearing regularly on BBC television and radio.
