The Adolescent Need

Referring to Jonathan Turley's Op-Ed on the gradual death of free speech in the west, Glenn Greenwald notes
...he places the blame squarely where it belongs: on the veneration of "sensitivities" over the free flow of ideas, and relatedly, the adolescent need on the part of many adults to plead with authority figures to shield them from views they find offensive.
It's not just views that many adults find offensive. It's behavior of all kinds that they dislike and seek to have the authorities eliminate.
