Ah, the venerable London School of Economics. According to its web site, the elite social science institute was “set up to improve society and to ‘understand the causes of things.’” The LSE, continued the bulletin, “has always put engagement with the wider world at the heart of its mission.” What better way to accomplish that than by censoring free expression about sensitive topics? Here we have it, folks: an institution that prides itself on being on the cutting edge of all things modern — and devoted, what’s more, to understanding n”the causes of things — resurrects that icon of medievalism: a law against blasphemy!
Don’t believe me? Check it out here: “The London School of Economics [LSE] Student Union has passed a motion effectively making it impossible for students on campus to criticize Islam.”
Ouch...I don't know why Roger's saying "ouch." From the sounds of it, the capitulation didn't hurt a bit.
Update: My poem for the skool:
Behold, the LS of E
Where it is as clear as can be
That Islam is what harks;
In fact it's like Marx.
And like Marxists brooks no blasphemy.
