Janet Albrechtsen is a leading Australian commentator, lawyer and a mother of three. She offers a spirited defence of liberal values against the Left’s commitment to grievance, envy, and intolerance.
“It s no coincidence that the corruption of feminism has occurred at the same time that our commitment to free speech has faltered.”
“Forty years ago the left abandoned libertarian notions of human rights and embraced this new definition of egalitarian rights.” And it began with “the right to equal concern and respect”.
“Under this new framework, people are not seen as autonomous resilient and rational, under this new framework people are seen as masses of nerves that need protection”.
There is more. “The scandal is the strategic silence of modern feminism around freedom for women”.
