As we have seen, free speech in the secular world is believed to inhibit the goal of a peaceful society. Society has evolved to create what are called “experts” who have been successfully educated to be able to tell you what to think and say. Experts have made free speech an archaic concept. Yet there are still some old fashioned people holding on to the proclaimed debunked concept of free speech, How can we deal with them?
NYC is leading the way in the defense of experts.

Who can object to such social progress? When Rick Lewis hears about this you will be getting fines for referring to illegal aliens in your posts. Even now the experts in NY are planning to expand the ban on free speech to include loud obnoxious feminists. You will no longer be allowed to refer to them as a pain in the ass. It will cost another 250 grand to do so.It’s now against the law in New York City to threaten someone with a call to immigration authorities or refer to them as an “illegal alien” when motivated by hate.
The restrictions — violations of which are punishable by fines of up to $250,000 per offense — are outlined in a 29-page directive released by City Hall’s Commission on Human Rights.
“‘Alien’ — used in many laws to refer to a ‘noncitizen’ person — is a term that may carry negative connotations and dehumanize immigrants, marking them as ‘other,'” reads one passage of the memo. “The use of certain language, including ‘illegal alien’ and ‘illegals,’ with the intent to demean, humiliate, or offend a person or persons constitutes discrimination.”………………………..
Freedom vs, statist slavery. The people are choosing statist slavery and the creation of experts to tell them what to think, do, and say, or risk the wrath of experts.
Ben Franklin didn’t believe the sacrifice of free speech was worth it. I don’t either. Do you?
