Rules of engagement

From this piece about critics of social justice warriors. Btw, this media bias factcheck report on the New Republic: "Overall, we rate the New Republic Left biased based on story selection and editorial positions that frequently favor the left. We also rate them High for factual reporting due to proper sourcing of information and a clean fact check record."

"Debate is fruitful when the terms of the conversation are agreed upon by both parties. […] Singal and others who are critical of the social justice left—a group that ranges across the ideological spectrum and includes Bari Weiss, Ben Shapiro, Daphne Merkin, and Katie Roiphe—accuse the left of being footstampingly insistent on their views, to the detriment of healthy debate. In fact, it is the 'debate me, coward' crowd that has made it impossible to have arguments in good faith, because they demand, unwittingly or not, to set the terms."
