C. Van Woodward Quote

“To curtail free expression strikes twice at intellectual freedom, for whoever deprives another of the right to state unpopular views necessarily deprives others of the right to listen to those views.”

An accurate observation; BUT & WHILE, in a much broader scope's subject matter, curtailing free expression (at natural law and justice) strikes at more than just “intellectual” freedom. I personally claim a religion with professed beliefs and views radically differing at times from the occupying statist theocracy infesting this land with its national establishment of religion. The current demonic national establishment of religion determines what is PC acceptable and when religion can be called religion. By example: Nuns of a certain religious order have no freedom of expression in dispensing or not, certain contraceptions while, canons and corporate by-laws (under a misleading nomenclature – i.e., codes, ordinances, regulation, rules, statutes, etc.) such as 501( c ) (3), restrict competing religions subject matter expressions.

Same as it ever was.  The truth must be sought out diligently, there are so many forces at work to put on appearances to cover up the lack of substance.  Every tradition has become corrupted.  Every government bureau is now a labor racket.  The airwaves are filled with propaganda.  Science is settled.  I've been fed a bunch of crap for a LONG time now.  Depriving people of hearing these views IS the point!
