Why this generation of young adults shies away from free speech

Jay Fayza of Rebel Media has a nice video explaining “Two Big Reasons My Generation Hates Free Speech”

Note how Jay explains postmodernism and connects it to Marxism and nihilism, and a tendency to deny reality out of convenience.  He notes that in the 60s it was young people who led the way with free speech and demonstrations not only about race but about the Vietnam era. Today, young people build “subjective identities” not based on facts (such as, you could say, gender fluidity).  Campuses have tended to believe that people need to sheltered from hostility based on these identities, rather than dealing with challenges (as I had to).
