When it comes to free speech here in this forum, I have no problem with any idea that is duly defended, or at least there is the resemblance of a defense; or is interesting and intellectually provocative (don't want to get restrictive, after all, minds should be largely left alone to explore, or just wander through ideas. I don't appreciate the call to get thematically back on track very much. If someone says something interesting and something else not so much, then go with what is interesting, and hang the intent of the OP). Most of the "horses" here are thoughtful ones, bound to inquire and understand.Eduk:
ctually I guess this post is less about whether every post is worth reading, which it obviously isn't, and more about what to do about it.
Some people seem to be suggesting censorship?
Other people aim to educate?
I am minded of the 'you can bring a horse to water' proverb.
But when it comes to people in general, censorship and education does become an issue of a different nature altogether.
Remember Skinner in Beyond Freedom and Dignity: we are, all of us, conditioned. Why not ensure that we are conditioned properly? Hate the sound of that? So do I, but then, I was conditioned to despise authoritative control, dogmatic insistence.
