Freedom to speak
An American and a Soviet meet. The American says, "You Soviets aren't free. I can stand outside the White House and scream 'Ronald Reagan is an idiot!' and nothing will happen to me." The Soviet replies - "We are just as free as you are. I can stand in front of the Kremlin and scream 'Ronald Reagan is an idiot!' and nothing will happen to me"
And now for something serious. In the j-blogosphere, being a reflection of real life, it is getting harder and harder to question and explore certain ideas which are deemed "politically incorrect" especially wrt Jews. This is not a new thing, but it really bothers me. Examples include the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the Holocaust, "Jews behaving badly", etc...
I am not naive. I understand the motivations for this pressure, and frankly I don't deny that many of the reasons for this are valid. So I don't really have a good solution for this, except it feels wrong to me.
