    LOL, well good for you. Now if you could be coherent once in a while you would be making great progress.

    You're welcome, Joe, and yep, this certainly isn't the whole story by any means. There's several things that could be behind the scenes - possibly including a vindictive student who was trying to get even for receiving a bad grade. No way to get below the surface (yet) from what little I could find.

    Freedom of speech is possible in a society full of emotionally mature and rational adults. As we depart from this, freedom of speech becomes more and more precarious and restricted.

    For example, yelling fire in a theatre, when there is no fire, would trick the irrational. The rational person would expect to smell or see smoke and if the conditions don't pass both tests, you know it is a trick.

    If you have emotional problems all types of words can push your buttons thereby creating the need to restrict speech. They used teach the children of the past, sticks and stone can break my bones but names can never hurt me. That worked under the assumption of emotional sound rational children who could compare cause and effect. It does not work today because there is too much political mileage being gotten from the induction of emotional retardation.

    Much of loss to free speech has to do with the change from masculine to feminine culture. Father (in general) wanted the children to mature and get out of the house so he can have his wife back. While mother wants to keep her children dependent and close. Liberalism is more maternal than paternal. The older culture was more masculine and paternal. This allowed maximum free speech. The feminine influence required lies to suit the ladies which then causes problems with cause and effect.

    Liberalism is far more prolific is laws, regulations, procedures and restrictions because it works under the assumption of an irrational culture without common sense, which is prophetic.

    Oh, and just where does this society exist? And what does “emotionally mature” mean exactly? This is just more utter nonsense reflecting great ignorance and a lot of cognitive bias.



    You can have a fire in the building without being able to smell it. That is why fire detectors were developed and are widely used.


    I guess that explains the American right wing.



    So women are responsible for all our ills. And women are responsible for your perceived loss of speech. Ah yes back in the day when men could legally beat their wives, those times were so much better. I think not.
