Simply Put


- what's going on in the US in recent years is top-level whoa... 


Getting so exercised over decisions

Which have absolutely no direct effect

On their lives, and insisting others live

Theirs as they see fit, is so messed up.

But that they succeed as a minority

Within a democracy is the true mess!

Absolutely! This is where the concept of 'free speech' has been allowed to ignore the needed proviso that you have free speech and practice it as long as you don't harm, incite, or hurt other people. This rule also applies to 'free will'. Of course you can have, and can express your beliefs, but you harm other people when you oppress/depress or bully people, or in any other way disturb or deny their own rights with abstract ideas.

People here in the US, and in many other places, are convinced that demands for tolerance of others are forms of oppression. "Being told that I can't stop a woman from getting an abortion, that I can't belittle blacks, or Hispanics, or Asians, or people who aren't heterosexual, even women, is a restriction of my freedom." Though such people are dangerous and irritating, they're also pathetic. Like us, they know that, as they age and their numbers diminish, their influence will ebb away.
