Political correctness and its discontents

Brendan O’Neill, one of Britain’s quirkiest, wittiest and liveliest commentators, sat down with former CIS research fellow Jeremy Sammut.

Along with its various campus manifestations such as “safe spaces,” political correctness has become a kind of pathology that damages the capacity to argue and reason. How should we challenge PC?

Brendan O’Neill is the editor of Spiked Online and a former CIS scholar in residence. He is author of A Duty to Offend: Selected Essays by Brendan O’Neill.
