This book is a political opinion piece to bring back the balance to societal debate.  It encourages the re-ignition of real freedom of speech, and everything that stands for. ‘You Can't Say That’ aims to reinforce the need for a fair and just society for everyone, not just those who classify themselves as victims based on their identity. It supports the desire to restore the balance to our debates, social discourse and policy settings, as well as push back against the inequity and hypocrisy of identity politics.
