“Free” Speech At The “Free Speech Forum” (October 22, 2018)

. . .

K          “They advertised the ‘Free Speech Forum’ as ‘a gathering open to everyone and anyone committed to free, open, unfettered and unbounded discussion of any and all topics and concerns’ and in the very fine print noted ‘(except topics and concerns that are too complex, painful or difficult to address as determined by the unfettered discretion of the Committee)’.”

J          “Calling it the ‘Forum After The Forum’ is intriguing and inviting.  I am intrigued; I feel invited.  ‘A gathering open to everyone and anyone committed to free, open, unfettered and unbounded discussion of any and all topics and concerns including but not limited to topics and concerns that are complex, painful and difficult to address’ sums it up.”

. . .

J          “There is no entry fee to the Forum, but there is a cost.”

. . .

K          “I hate to see folks doing to themselves what we try so hard to keep the government from doing to us.”

J          “You must make both gigs to find out what cannot be discussed and then to find out what must be discussed.”

If you want to know who controls you, consider those you are not allowed to criticize

Free Speech, why not?

Free Speech, what good does it really do if it is enslaved?
