Stanley Fish on tolerance

This is a great article: "far from being a simple, benign virtue, tolerance is the technology or governmentality... of an ideology that privileges some values — individual will, autonomy, choice, procedural (not substantive) justice, rationality, freedom of expression, freedom of markets — and stigmatizes or marginalizes others — group loyalty, religious obedience, the law of God, tribal traditions, the national ethos, blood, culture."
