Now we may actually have an opportunity to discuss a topic in which I care dearly about, freedom of expression. I firmly believe that the concept of "freedom of speech" is not a right, but a responsibility. And the responsibility involved is the need to defend that which you abhor. Most people misunderstood Carlin's Seven Words, which were never about the specific words, and more about the faux-morality involved.

Yup, there's a swell guy to explain to me what the significance of morals, mores and taboos are.
Great post, thread, Skeptic. And considering the number of positive affirmations to Carlin's drivel, it appears my predictions of the demise of our once great culture is about on target.

He was on Real Time with Bill Maher this past Friday. This HBO show has been stellar, with both Right Wingers and humans ( ) both well represented. He's had Ann Coulter on with Aron McGruder, Christy Whitman, Carol Braun.
