Snowflakes?

  • Gladstonian Liberal

    Lots of young people have been called ‘snowflakes’ recently. This group likes ‘safe spaces’, appear easily offended and ‘call-out’ micro aggressions. But sadly all of this is about shutting down ideas and curtailing freedom of speech. This is not the work of a tender snowflake but of a militancy that appears to have taken a hold of many universities. Calling them snowflakes surely let’s them off the hook?

    Indeed. It is used to rehsape how we think. The problem is that the inconsiderate then claim they are being criticised by the politically correct when they are rude.

    Not all liberals are snowflakes. however many are. A liberal who might close down a conservative at a university – that’s a snowflake (and a bully who uses numbers (and violence) alternatively of discussion. I must add that if a conservative might close down a liberal, UK Essay Writer then you definitely have a conservative snowflake. )
