We need not fear words

Mark Mercer – Ottawa Citizen

A commission that seeks to protect us from hurtful statements would transform us into victims, cowering before the mere words of another…

Prof. Moon, if he appreciates its nature and importance, will have an easy time balancing freedom of expression against our need to be protected from hate messages, for we have no such need. And pretending that we do lands us in the toxic muck of identity politics and the cult of victimization.

The rest.
