A step in the "right" direction

Post by smelly-bandit on Mon Oct 30, 2017 11:18 am

let's have university 'brave spaces' where people can say what they like without fear of offending the 'snowflakes', says former Harvard academic

John Palfrey said 'brave spaces' could co-exist with 'safe spaces' at universities

Safe spaces have been introduced to protect the feelings of sensitive students

Last week MailOnline revealed how the student union at King's College London were paying 'safe space marshals' to listen in on talks by outside speakers

Professor Palfrey, who has written book Safe Spaces, Brave Spaces said diversity and freedom of speech were unnecessarily being pitted against each other

One could only imagine such place where all debate is welcome regardless of how controversial it is

Oh well guess we just have to settle for safe spaces
