  1. Political correctness: a force for good? A Munk Debate

    The resolution? "What you call political correctness, I call progress…"

    On May 18th, the redoubtable Stephen Fry (self-admitted soft leftie) and I debated the duo of academic, author and radio host Michael Eric Dyson (https://bit.ly/2IzKSZz) and blogger/author Michelle Goldberg (https://bit.ly/2wVOTBZ). A press release describing the debate can be found here: https://bit.ly/2IUnG7j

    64% of the audience prior to the debate disagreed with the idea that political correctness was a force for good, while 36% disagreed. 87% said they were willing to change their mind. By the end of the evening, the split was 70/30.
