Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

I Think This Is Right

I think those of us who are left of center need to be more comfortable with uncomfortable speech.  I realize "hate speech" is problematic, and I'd like to try and educate people past that.

But I can't support blaming the editors at Charlie Hedbo for what happened.  I can't support allowing those who are targets of satire to have a veto point over it.
