Peter Kurti exposes a grand deception: the tolerance and diversity brigade cannot tolerate diversity of thought. In a time of fake news and social media mobs, his thoughtful deliberation about the meaning of tolerance and its tension with political liberty is indispensable. He critiques the origin of Australian multiculturalism and the corrosive cultural effect of codifying diversity in discrimination law. Peter explains religious freedom and restores the principle to its rightful place in the heart of 21st-century democracy.
Peter Kurti is a Research Fellow with CIS (The Centre for Independent Studies) and an expert in religion & values in civil society, law & religious freedom, and ethics. Dave interviewed Peter in front of an audience to help launch his new book, The Tyranny of Tolerance. The first half of the interview is followed by a brief Q&A, before the second half of the conversation is concluded by a longer time for Q&A.

ALL MY VIDEOS have been demonitised by YouTube. That's as insane as not showing ad's between stories on 60 Minutes because the topics are tough or controversial. Demonitising social commentary is nothing but Big Corporate censorship, trying to make it harder to make a living out of telling the Truth.
