Free Speech, or Not?

By Remy Benoit

Freedom of speech is the cornerstone of democracy.
It creates dialogue; it leads to exchange of ideas; it feeds the democratic process.

Somewhere along the line, we have let go of the idea of common ground, what is best for all in the country, and fallen into the abyss of "my way" or the "wrong way."

Somewhere along the line, we have fallen into the grip of political correctness, rather than open dialogue.

From Common Dreams and Medea Benjamin Peace Activists at Hillary Clinton’s Speech Try to Take Back “Take Back America.

What is your plan for Iraq, Senator Clinton?

From the Take Back America Conference, Bill Moyers, and Common Dreams This is Your Story - The Progressive Story of America. Pass It On.

From Find Articles History of Conservatism.


Project for the New American Century.

From Fordham, Internet Modern History Sourcebook Liberalism.

From Truthout and Bill Zide The "C" Word.

If we must use "tags" to identify each other, then we really should know what they mean. And, as always, each "tag" has within it different bottom line positions.

To make democracy work, whatever our particular "tag" we must each take a stand.

And just for fun, Dumb Laws.
