Can We Talk? or the Battle for Free Speech Is in Full Swing

Luncheon (Le Déjeuner)

  • “There are three things I have learned never to discuss with people: religion, politics, and the Great Pumpkin.” — Linus

The majority of links I post are writing-related. Writing–like living, feeling, thinking–is inseparable from freedom. And this freedom is under attack.

However, no one is safe.

Adhere to the narrative, and you’ll be fine. Break a stereotype — you’ll be condemned. Your sexuality, race, gender won’t matter.

“Too many people of all persuasions act as though there are views, based on one’s perceived identity alone, that others must share. No matter what else might be said, that is an extraordinarily warped view of freedom.”

Fight for the right to write. The right to think, feel, live. Be brave.

Enjoyed the post? Share it with others, press ‘like’ — thank you.
