NO-OFFENSE SOCIETY IS A NO-KNOWLEDGE SOCIETY

From the book "Kindly Inquisitors"
Jonathan Rauch says in his book "Kindly Inquisitors" that our society teaches Plato who taught the ethic of totalitarianism, devotion to the state with a ruling elite.

He says a no-offense society is a no-knowledge society. And we benefit from living in a society RICH WITH PREJUDICES, which energize debate. He says attempts to stamp out prejudice kills science. Science teaches us to doubt and criticize. Good criticism drives out bad. You must persuade others.

That's about it in a nutshell.
