Occasional Observation #34

Quebec Premier Legault is right to criticize political correctness as something that stifles intellectual debate and spirited inquiry. But he is wrong to say it is the work of radical activists. Serious radical activists are out in the streets or busy doing mobilization work. They’ve no time to spend removing the works of Mark Twain or Pierre Vallieres from library shelves on the grounds of their use of certain allegedly objectionable words. That is the work of, at most, the movement’s flyweights and bantamweights.
