Quotation of the Day…

… is from pages 256-257 of George Will’s 2021 book, American Happiness and Discontents: The Unruly Torrent, 2008-2020 – a collection of many of Will’s columns over these years; (the essay – now titled “A Raised Eyebrow About ‘Redskins’” – from which the quotation below is drawn originally appeared in the Washington Post on October 16th, 2014):

The fact that censorship is progressivism’s default position regarding so many things is evidence of progressives’ pessimism about the ability of their agenda to advance under a regime of robust discussion. It also indicates the delight progressives derive from bossing people around and imposing a particular sensibility, in the name of diversity, of course.
