Fatheaded Ed Brayton the hypocrite
. . .silencing those whose views enrage us is really just a poor means of assuaging our own insecurities.
Fatheaded Ed does not really believe in free speech -- otherwise he would not have permanently banned me from commenting on his blog.
The zeal to censor, while understandable on an emotional level, is primarily a reflection of our lack of confidence in the power of reason to persuade and to separate the true from the false.
