The free speech battle has left college. The evolution of cancel culture │ Greg Lukianoff

Atlas Nexus

For years the discussion about free speech, safe spaces, and open debate centered around universities and college campuses. But now the fight for open exchange has left the classroom and entered the workplace. Greg Lukianoff, president of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), explains how "cancel culture" is a natural consequence of student-led initiatives to restrict free speech, describes the state of free speech on college campuses, and discusses his prophetic book "The Coddling of the American Mind," coauthored by Jonathan Haidt.
