In a world where "wokeness" is positively embraced it appears intolerance and bullying have been on the rise. We need to guard against this if we are going to protect our democracy, writes Greg Nott.
Democracies are a messy business.
You don't just need to be following the US elections of the past week to know that. I imagine that it is far less complicated, at least for those in power, to rule autocratically. But the freedoms that democracies enshrine are worth the messiness that comes with this type of government, even when it means dealing with a deeply polarised population.
