I recently gave my business card to a friend. Her response was “This is just silly, you can’t ban thoughts.” That sentiment is exactly why this blog exists. Because while I agree that you shouldn’t be able to ban a thought, people are trying all the time. Groups are banning books, banning certain types of speech, banning words. All of this amounts to an attempt to ban certain thoughts. All parties are guilty, the left wants to ban negative speech and paint the world in rosy colors. The right wants to ban sex, drugs, and rock’n’roll. Just look at the list of banned books and you can draw a line showing which side banned which books.
What is that but an attempt at thought control? And is thought control possible? YES. Look at the world, look at the former USSR, look at China, and finally look here – at home. Look at the bodies of the war dead returning home. Oh, you can’t? Why? Because those images were banned by a president afraid of the thoughts they would provoke. New versions of classic fairy tales have been written for our “politically correct” times. But who is deciding the politics of correctness? No one asked me, that’s for sure.
So, this blog is here; to expose the thought police, to spread controversial ideas, to spark discussions and hopefully keep thought free and speech protected.
Thanks for visiting.
