Freedom to offend

When people are certain about their identity, they are not easily offended, nor are they willing to give the state the power to "protect" them, since a healthy society has many ways to "tar and feather" outrageus doctrines. Unfortunately we are witnessing a double trend in which, while the cultural fabric of society weakens, the power of the state becomes more absolute.
David Warren has a good column on the subject.
