So, the college students who advocate censoring supposed insensitive remarks about minorities are simply taking on the role of "parent."
That's unusual for youth. Frequently those years in college are ones of experimentation. Usually that includes pushing the envelope about what they could get away with saying and writing.
But, once in the workplace, that ends. Loose lips sink careers.
Intimate relationships would never survive freedom of speech.
Many murders are triggered, pun intended, by a too-free run of the mouth.
And, no, I am not free to complain to my four-footed son that I deeply resent walking him when I am exhausted, it's freezing outside, and I'm on deadline.
To me, free speech is like the Easter Bunny. Just not real.
