Mark Kingwell is a professor of philosophy at the University of Toronto, who also writes columns for The Globe & Mail.
So what is this philosopher’s advice?
Don’t bother trying to understand those on the ‘other side’
Huh? Isn’t that the basis of all intellectual growth, understanding and compromise, of all community, of solving all problems?
Listen to Kingwell:
"Curbs on speech and strict rules of engagement – no interruptions, no slogans, no talking points – may be the right answer here. We already, in this country, ban hateful speech. Let's go farther and insist on discourse rules, limits on public outrage and aggressively regulated social media. We could even ban media panel discussions.”
He’s not just talking about banning people like us at The Rebel — who he mentions by name.
He literally names mainstream media pundits as people to be censored.
Basically, everyone but him.
The Globe and Mail actually published this. It was not a parody.
They hate you, my friends.
And they want to silence you.
