Johnathan Haidt isn't a leftist. He's a liberal. You can tell because he's not calling for censorship. Free speech is a bedrock liberal ideal.

    Sigh...liberals are the enemy of the left as well. They're on the right now. The left hijacked the label liberal, something they have never been. After they ruined and destroyed the meaning they moved on to "progressive". Leftists hate liberals, just ask them. "Liberals get the bullet too" is a common catchphrase, referring to the executions they plan after their revolution succeeds.

    How do you tell the difference between liberals and leftists? Easy. Liberals believe in freedom of speech. They might disagree with what you say but will defend to the death your right to say it.

    Leftists, on the other hand, freely use censorship as a weapon of first resort. Their own positions are so weak that if people are allowed to point out the many problems, they would collapse.

      I think they're mostly stupid kids who find the idea romantic and won't stick with it when things get real.

      Our cities are ON FIRE because of them. How is it you can downplay this terrorist group? WTF? How's it so hard to condemn them?
