This is just sick. We know where this going to end up.
Yep I had one liberal actually tell me here on ATS, that totalitarianism is really a good thing and said it would be good for Americans.
I was floored. I thought that neo-liberals felt totalitarianism is a good goal, but was shocked to see a lib actually say it.
Classical liberals thought that freedom of speech was very very important regardless of how offensive the speech.
Neo-liberals want to control speech they find offensive.
speech control (making certain words so socially unacceptable that people who use them lose jobs, reputations etc.)
thought control, what happens when speech control is tight, because if you can't say it you lose the ability to think it or to pass on a thought that
is considered "offensive or wrong"
action control (making certain non-actions linked to religious beliefs illegal)
calling for the jailing or killing of people for non-climate change worship
