NOTE: Technical difficulties in the first fifteen minutes. Apologies in advance. Our topic will revolve around the recent dramatic shift in campus culture. Ideas we're going to discuss are sort of an extension on our PC discussions, but specifically focusing on what's going on with college campuses, especially on how someone can risk losing their job by saying something or using a word. This will be a follow-up to a discussion on episode 280 of "Waking Up With Sam Harris" and the description of the dramatic shift in atmosphere that Jonathan Haidt explained.
