@SelfsameSynonym I'll just say it right out (and forgive me for saying the magic words aloud)
"free speech" is a concept that's completely rotten by now and someone needs to put a bullet in its head. it's a bloodstained idol now, not a legitimate social or political ideal, and I wanna pull it down and smash it
Western society, American society in particular, wants to defend "free speech" to the death when it doesn't know what "free" means or what "speech" means. it's unhinged
most persons' notions of both "speech" and "freedom" are appalling, puerile
what are we gonna do about that?
