I’ve been reading a continuously vitriolic exchange of tweets on twitter between two high profile right wingers, who should ostensibly be on the same ‘side’, and wondering. Just what kind of a monster/weapon is free speech?
Let me be clear. I am a free speech advocate through and through, and rather against the government taking arms away from private citizens, but I understand why there are those who disagree.
Consider the quaint history of disagreements between gentlemen. There were rules, mutual consent, and a sense of decency. For a fleeting moment, I long for the days of the Duel.
