Alexander  Kissler - No Tolerance for the Intolerant
 
 
 

 

About the danger of false compromises!

Pork is disappearing from school books, mosques from soap packaging – the self-censorship of the West is having absurd effects. On the one hand, freedom of press and opinion is sacrosanct, but then terror is beginning to leave its mark: after the attacks in Paris, for example, there have been occasional demands for penalising blasphemy more forcibly …

Do we really have to accept the fact that particularly devout people are particularly twitchy? Do we want to sacrifice freedom of self-determination in return for the illusion that we are thus able to mollify the enemies of precisely this freedom?

Alexander Kissler's book is a call for us to fortify with self-confidence our freedom of opinion and religion.



• Self-censorship: why too much political correctness is the wrong way to go

• A challenging point of view in times of ideological turmoil
