    You're talking to a pretty small crowd then. I never met anybody that wanted what you claim. That's crazy.

    Perhaps but when a law is made that does give government the power to do this it couldn't have been done with one CRAZY politician.
    Maybe this is quite large but people who are trying for this don't see it in a manner of more gov power but as a tool to remove an opposition.

    Yes. That's when right wing propaganda took off. Also when all the vitriolic division in our country took off.

    I don't agree with you often, but in this case, I couldn't agree more.

    But here is the problem.

    With the way critical theory is being pushed, I have seen polls among the younger portions of the millennial generation, and the next generation coming up after it, the iGen if you will, that no longer believe that the First Amendment is sacrosanct. They actually believe that the government should make laws, restricting, a priori, some types of speech.

    This, "critical theory," is being engineered and taught to the next generations.

    Can we in good conscious really believe that classical liberalism won't die when some authoritarian minded fool like Trump or Obama occupies the white house, when these generations are the major portions of society influencing the law making of our culture?
