The Minority Report on The Problem With Thought Policing

The Minority Report on The Problem With Thought Policing

“When somebody says something that’s homophobic, for example, you deal with the homophobia. And then you keep it moving. Because when it becomes a question of shaming the person, you can’t move on from there. I always like to make the distinction between guilt and shame. Guilt is tied to a specific action. Shame is malignant, and there’s nothing productive that can come out of it.”

In this episode of #TheMinorityReportNG, the hosts take on the idea of thought policing, a fast growing cancer in LGBT politics, where for all of our liberalism, we have become quite illiberal when it comes to taking on opinions that go against who we are or what we believe.

Check out the episode and let us know what you think:
