Freedom School: more panelists

On the weekend, I posted my little speech from the Freedom School.

My good friend Elsa’s much longer – but most excellent – speech is here.

I was part of the panel on Political Correctness:  in my never-humble-opinion, ‘Politically Correct speech is an example of the worst kind of ‘hate speech’.

Some of my co-panelists had quite excellent things to say, quite worthy of your attention.  (And, not all of my co-panelists’ speeches are out yet – editing takes time – but, here are the ones that are.)

Please note that Valerie Price, in her speech, calls attention to the plight of Free Dominion:

And, here is Janice Fiamengo, a professor at Ottawa University whose Ottawa speech last Friday had experienced such heckling…

Aside:  at that conference, Dr. Fiamenco and I had a most excellent discussion about the book ‘Reading Lollita in Teheran’ – we both loved it and I would recommend that book to everyone!!!

Freedom School: Political Correctness Panel

January 31st/February 1st 2014,  there was an event in Edmonton called ‘Freedom School:  Essentials of Freedom.’

One of the many excellent parts of the program was a panel on Political Correctness:  a number of speakers addressed Political Correctness in different spheres of our life and from widely differing angles.  The short little speeches were followed by a very lively Q&A.

Perhaps I am jumbling the order of speakers, but, I admit I am a little biased…  So, please forgive me that I present the last speaker first:
