Eternally Radical Idea

What is the Eternally Radical Idea? It is freedom of speech. The unfettered right to state your opinion is extremely rare in human history. Your right to promote reform, contradict prevailing orthodoxies, or engage in artistic and personal expression is even rarer.

'Coddling of the American Mind' Official Afterword

Bestselling authors Greg Lukianoff and Jonathan Haidt wrote an afterword for The Coddling of the American Mind in the summer of 2021 to be added to a second edition of the book in 2022, but it grew so long that it would have substantially raised the page-count and cost of the book. Instead, the afterword is available on FIRE's website.
