  • Censorship is not the solution. Gun violence is merely the peak of the iceberg. The root is far more complex and embedded in who we are as human beings, capable of the best and the worst regardless of races.

  • 8Chan and to a lesser, but no less vile degree, Reddit, are problematic in that they are freewheeling First Amendment forums that libertarians and most advocates for free speech should celebrate; they're also home to the collective Id of every angry person on the planet harboring a grudge or resentment

    8Chan and to a lesser, but no less vile degree, Reddit, are problematic in that they are freewheeling First Amendment forums that libertarians and most advocates for free speech should celebrate; they're also home to the collective Id of every angry person on the planet harboring a grudge or resentment about someone or some thing. Honestly, the most innocent of postings about movies or people can deteriorate into the most repellent, profanity laced commentary within minutes of being posted on these sites. Turning them off will only make the transgressors find someplace else to let their hate and vitriol fester. Better to be able to watch them from a distance and prepare to take action, then to drive them further underground and await the unexpected.
