“…and on the first minute of the first hour of the first day, god created free speech and made man so he could think and express his thoughts freely, without fear of injury or assault, for his words are an expression of his mind, and if found offensive to the ears of the listener that listener could then reply and reject the thoughts of the free speaker, as well as just walk away from there”
Now the fact that its in quotation does not mean I found it anywhere, but isn’t it bluntly obvious that if anyone created human beings and their minds that this creator would like those little people to speak their mind and not keep it locked inside for fear of danger?
Almost all religions want to limit free speech, now we got governments joining in with great enthusiasm to tax the internet and to limit its users on the content they create and the thoughts that they describe. So now that all the proper authorities are aligned with creating things to tax, like the carbon tax and soon to come the internet taxation free speech will be limited and controlled, and of course will increase the ever growing flow of money to the governments and will continue naturally to the banks so they can cover the loses they take for managing working people money.
If a roman citizen from 100BC would have moved in to contemporary 2011 U.S. or Europe he would be amazed at the taxes people have ideas for, but he will also be amazed at how, without the clear show of aggression and brutality, people in power silence anyone who does not keep quite and speaks his or her mind, now that’s progress. Let us imagine a visit to London of 2950 in the future, where people are taxed for touching flowers and trees, because of the potential harm it might cause the plant in the process of photosynthesis, visits to governmental (or bank) owned lands in the countryside will be taxed for use of higher quality air and the global leader (world government, not easy to forget that one) can increase taxation on warmer or cooler regions of the planet.
And no one shall speak against it, for it is not only a sin to doubt the global leader but to raise suspicion and fear in the minds of the subdued and obedient citizens of the world.
Reject religions and anyone who tells you that you can not or should not challenge anything, doubt everything and be skeptic of anyone, do not conform to the moral standards of (the not-so-pious) religious leaders. If you really love whatever it was that made you, the first thing you can do is to speak your mind and use your mouth.
