Free speech, censorship & the right to be wrong…

Do we have a responsibility to silence views we consider morally repugnant or simply untrue? Claims that the Holocaust didn’t happen are insane and revolting. Should we prevent people from airing those views? Refuse to debate with them? Should we declare that some opinions do not deserve to be heard?

It’s a good question. Not an easy one to answer maybe. It’s offensive to listen to people excusing or even denying hideous crimes against humanity. The instinct is that they should be stopped somehow. That’s why questioning the reality of the Holocaust is a crime in some countries.

But what about the other side of that? If we – however honourably – designate any opinion to be worthy of unconditional censorship have we not created a dreadful precedent? Holocaust-denial might be a no-brainer for condemnation – but what about “HIV-denial”? “climate-denial?”

In fact “Denialism”…

American Indian with Hands Up Tasered for No Reason in the Standing Rock Prairie Knights Casino Hotel; Pipeline Protesters-Reporters who Peacefully Evacuated Camp Victimized at the Casino Hotel

Abuse of power….

Mining Awareness +

If we were going to see this at the casino we should have stayed at the camp. We should have stayed at the camp” (M.A.E. Kurthland).

Madrigal-Alcaraz Enrique Kurthland peacefully evacuated one of the No Dakota Access Pipeline camps to stay at the Standing Rock Prairie Knights Casino Hotel, so as not to see the police brutality at the camps. Then the police taser his friend and relative – a Native American Veteran- in the casino hotel for no reason. The man had his hands up as is clear in these screenshots and even more clear in the videos: http://youtu.be/OtCTFKHiwA4
As can be seen the man has his hands up:
Madrigal-Alcaraz Enrique Kurthland Video Standing Rock Casino American Indian hands up
The police then grabbed his hand which was up, apparently trying to twist it to hand-cuff him:

A beginner’s guide to the Guardian

George Monbiot has trashed solar calling it “Eco bling” He has trashed wind power alongside the M6 at Shap… Instead he has been telling Cumbrians that what they need is lovely new nuclear and not nasty old coal. Now it looks like Cumbrians are to be frogmarched into both diabolic Nuclear and Coal (in very close proximity) on the West Coast. There is a deathly silence from George and the Guardian on this abuse. Apparently, in the world according to George, the Herdwick is the greatest threat Cumbrians have ever faced.

The Guardian newspaper is a limited company and has been since 2008 when the Scott Trust was wound up and replaced by The Scott Trust Ltd, which appoints a board comprised of bankers, management consultants, venture capitalists and other classic left-wingers. The paper itself is written nearly exclusively by elite-educated members of the upper middle class. The viewpoint you would expect to come from this privileged set-up is what you do get.

Murray McDonald, in his Hidden History of the Guardian, explains that The Guardian was launched to undermine working-class leaders of the early 19th century reform movement (whose members were massacred at Peterloo), and during its 150 year history has denounced Ireland’s freedom fighters, Women Suffragettes, Abraham Lincoln’s campaign to end slavery, third world nationalism and pretty much any kind of genuine independence from the system. It supported Tony Blair, even when the…

How to institutionalise the world

Interesting essay ……

OffGuardian

by Darren Allen

Welcome to the World.

You are alone and in enemy territory; stumbling around a frustrating, exhausting, shoddy reality which is, at its core, hostile to life in all its forms. Your instincts to share, cooperate and bring the necessities of life within reach of ordinary people are relentlessly punished. Your conscience is a burden here, your talents are useless, your uniqueness a liability and your actual experience of life a threat.

The only way you can survive in this place, much less accept that it makes any kind of sense, is to have your finer instincts amputated. No easy matter—in fact the eradication of your consciousness, creativity and sensitivity is a lifelong profess, beginning in the proto-institution of the home, continuing through fifteen to twenty years of intensive schooling and ending with forty to sixty years of work in the institutions of the world, also known as…
