Response to Freedomofspeech (Original post)

Sat Jul 1, 2017, 12:51 PM

32. Our constitution and Bill of Rights were written

for the most part so we could have a society with all its differences that could develop and coexist in civility; one that could work out its problems without decending to the worst impulses in human nature. Civility died with the rise of Trumpism. Our innate worst impulses are on the rise again.
In the oldest game of human survival the one with the biggest stick and largest number of participanrs with big sticks wins. The intelligent and thinking/empathetic only conquer the big sticks with overwhelming numbers incurring many losses or by taking up their own big sticks.
We can't just give up and shy away to defeat an uncivilized horde; they will win. We had better get tough, unify into large numbers and be powerfully and intelligently vocal and be prepared for the possibility of defending freedom with our own "big sticks" as a last resort. Otherwise, as history teaches, we will lose.
