I abhor the banishment of ideas and those who speak them.
I hate the stupid ideas. I love the brilliant ones. I routinely expose myself to both. I LOVE to debate and argue. I LOVE IT when I am beaten in a
debate because my ego got the better of me. I relish the disagreement, the intellectual contest, the growth as a person that I experience when I am
forced to defend my ideas or forfeit my worldview entirely.
Why are you here? Why am I?
I'm here to feed. I'm hungrier than anyone you know. I read every word you type and your challenge forces my mind open. A flow of information begins
and I live off of it for a few hours a day. I need you and cannot survive without you. You focus my mind and allow me to express myself against you.
You piss me off. You make me laugh with your logical absurdities and I disgust you with mine.
I am here to confirm that I am not insane and that I am still a rational human being and that the universe has not abandoned its laws. I am here to
experiment with my ideas and have their foolishness crushed out, it's egotism burned out, and it's ignorance polished away in the hopes of leaving us
all with at least one good idea for all of our efforts.
I don't want to see you banned. You are the other half of my good and bad ideas and without you, I am lost and prone to fooling myself and I just
can't have that.
To those of you that would force this upon me; what you do to the ideas you don't like matters. When you tell people they CAN'T have those ideas they
will cling to them. When you exclude them for those ideas instead of challenging them they return to destroy you. Debate and free exchange is the ONLY
WAY we arrive to our futures in one piece. The other way is through the barrel of a rifle.
