Intimidation and Self-Censorship

Bruce Bawer has an interesting piece on the decline of free expression in Europe, as expressed in government legislation as well as in self-censorship. I saw this over at Michael Barone's blog, and I liked his turn of phrase to set up the article: "The impulse of intellectual elites in Europe, and North America as well, is to show their tolerance by tolerating intolerance of tolerance. If Muslims object to some free expression, then that free expression must be suppressed."
