Hi Henry

Are you trying to make a point? I'm wondering what it is.

Are you saying it's safe or unsafe?

The word 'anyone' is dangerous on a philosophy forum. Is nobody safe?

Was anyone ever safe?

Nobody is safe in 2020. Each side of the divide is in danger of having epithets thrown at it or even worse. :mrgreen:
