Abstract

An account of the nineteenth-century origins of some motifs and rhetorical trends in contemporary right wing thought about free speech and the putative vulnerability of the so-called 'snowflake'. The article traces the current obsession with emotional fragility and triggering back to the proto-fascistic journalism of post-Communard France.
