      This has been going on in NZ for some years. I can find evidence from other countries if there are other doubters.

      Thanks, Jada, Richard.

      I have little knowledge of Political Correctness in the USofA.
      In Germany (and other countries) intolerance is rife on Facebook, with horrible (sexist) hatespeech). In everyday life it's mainly the pro-Erdogan Turks who are very intolerant. Turkish-descend politicians and media people need and get police protection. A horror. Why not boycott Erdogan dictatorial country, close the borders? The anti-immigrantion party  in former GDR laender are pretty violent as well.
      In Switzerland, Germany, The Netherlands, and other West-European countries freedom of speech is a given. There's no police at universities. Campuses are  few. Often university departments are spread ouf over the city. Haven't heard of free speech problems in NZ and Australia.
      In Poland andHungary the regimes arelibertycidal. The EU threatened to cut funding if anti-democratic laws are not repealed.

      Marjorie, the enemy *is* "large scale", and *capitalism*. Marx was very successful indeed, albeit not the various communist (*not* socialist) countries.

      Cuba is/was certainly no holy land from a human rights' perspective, but socially they did remarkably well, despite USAmerican bullying with docile W.-Europen compliance.
