    Little by little, year after year, our basic freedoms have been and are being severely weakened.

    We need to stop and reverse this trend NOW. Or we'll find ourselves whispering our thoughts to each other for fear of the PC police breaking down our doors....

    What needs saying also is how fascistic, how totally statist, the U.K. has become.
    For some reason -- "winners write the history books," I suppose -- Brits are considered the foremost spreaders of freedom and civilization.
    But pretty much since the end of World War II, that nation has become increasingly backward and repressed as well as repressive.
    This story illustrates that degeneration perfectly.

    This is in Canada. They are part of the empire we developed the Bill of Rights to protect, and presently run by lefties that make Obama look like Bill Clinton.

    I totally agree, you can’t be held accountable for thoughts.

    I do not hold with the idea of criminalizing emotions
    (such as hate); also, I wonder about the notion of
    "inciting" anything's being a crime.Actual crime (such as a lynching) should of course be appropriately punished. But it looks as if your are not going to get any sense out of what people are being taught in colleges.
    In fact, I think a nationwide boycott of colleges and universities would be a good idea.
