We enhance the freedom of the individual, but restrict what is acceptable in public discourse, branding previously conventional views as ‘bigoted’. Religious belief, once seen as a bastion of society, is now seen as a form of ‘extremism’: authoritarian, and therefore unacceptable, especially in public figures: are we really that tolerant?
