June 2019

  • In parts of the developed world, young people may be growing less tolerant . For example tolerance of LGBTQ individuals has decreased in the US - a jarring turn for a generation traditionally considered embracing and open. The number of Americans 18 to 34 who are comfortable interacting with LGBTQ people slipped from 53% in 2017 to 45% in 2018 – the only age group to show a decline, according to the annual Accelerating Acceptance report. And that is down from 63% in 2016.

Toleration is the greatest gift of the mind - Helen Keller

Quote 2840

Tolerance means among other things "broad-mindedness". But in the rows over such issues as the Islamic veil, we are offered two decidedly narrow-minded definitions. One says that we must tolerate any expression of cultural identity without criticism, in case we give offence. The other insists we must crack down on views that are not themselves tolerant. In either case, we are living in an age of intolerant tolerance.
