Centuries from now, I’m sure historians won’t bother teaching about the Magna Carta, the Constitution, the end of slavery, or the collapse of communism.

Instead, people who want to know about human rights will learn about these great European developments.

Now the Italians have taken the next step with a crucial legal decision that will enshrine an important basic freedom. What are we talking about, the right to free speech, the free exercise of religion, or the right to emigrate?

Don’t be silly, Italian courts have focused on something far more important.

Is this a hate crime?
