Subjectivization Empowers Individual Feelings, Bureaucrats

The preposterous halting of a Champions’ League match last week in Paris due to players refusing to play on after an alleged racist comment by one of the referees is the subject of the dubious doctor’s latest column at The Epoch Times.

As it is, we now live in a world in which the utterance of a single word in a foreign language that few understand and which might or might not have been used with a derogatory intonation, but which was not in itself necessarily derogatory, and was used in circumstances that are as yet unclear, is enough to set off an outpouring of canting self-righteousness, and possibly to ruin a man’s career.

Needless to say, this is not a world in which freedom will flourish.
