1. The paradox of tolerance is the idea that: A society that tolerates even the most extreme voices will gradually find itself dominated by extremely tolerant voices. If we refuse to tolerate other people’s voices, they will refuse to tolerate ours. The historical figures who have done the most to advance tolerance in society were actually quite intolerant people. If we allow every voice into our public discourse, we’ll gradually find this discourse dominated by the most intolerant voices. Correct! Wrong!
