The ideologically based chill on free speech on university campuses is preventing some people from expressing views, others from reading what they choose, and everyone from being treated as an adult. Words like "trigger", "bullying", "colonialist", and "racist" have been co-opted by the Supervising Class, and the university campus, which should by definition be a safe place for a universe of ideas, is being infantilized.
New Ninshu Press chapbook looks at hate speech, Holocaust denial, press censorship, jailed writers, blasphemy laws, international governance of the internet, and related issues of interest to writers and readers:
Do you know the names of the women who created the National Trust (UK), Kew Gardens, the Planned Parenthood Federation, the Battersea Dogs Home, Cruelty-Free International, the Cottage Garden style and Arts & Crafts movement, the poem on the Statue of Liberty, Kenya's Greenbelt Movement, Japan's Omoto religion, the Christian Science Monitor, the Gaia Theory? Who co-discovered the structure of the DNA molecule, nuclear fission, the Augur effect in physics, and instigated "sustainable development", or the Nobel Peace Prize? Nor do most school students. Women Who Made the World is a short, accessible handbook that helps fill the knowledge gap.
