Stifling Freedom of Speech Starts with One Voice Muffled

Did you also see burglars in your closets at night when you were a kid?

If Rupert Murdoch scares you then you should REALLY be scared by the government-controlled media like CNN and MSNBC.

Watch out. Rupert is coming .... oh no! I am afraid of Freedom of Speech ..... help .... give me one-voice-government-controlled media!!! NOT! (:-)

"Freedom of speech is the freedom to speak freely without censorship or limitation, or both. The synonymous term freedom of expression is sometimes used to indicate not only freedom of verbal speech but any act of seeking, receiving and imparting information or ideas, regardless of the medium used." From the wiki.

 Democracy, with its limitations, REQUIRES freedom of speech. Every totalitarian government begins by CONTROLLING the voices of dissenters.

People who want Rupert Murdoch, or Fox News, or even CNN or MSNBC [yuk] or even the Toronto Star are wrong. What scares me is the people who claim freedom for what they want to do but want to stifle the voices they don't want to hear! That is totalitarianism at its worst.

European totalitarianism (such as Nazism, Communism, and Fascism) began as a result of the Great Depression. [Editor: Do we really want to start a Hitler-Stalin-Mao-KimJung Il style government in Canada?]

The Depression had many country's citizens desperate for a solution to their economic problems, and followed the extreme socialist leaders who promised restoration. These leaders became dictators who took advantage of their power and their people's support to create totalitarian governments.

Are we being primed for that scenario now?

Nazi ideology stressed the failures of laissez-faire capitalism, communism, economic liberalism, and democracy; supported the "racial purity of the German people" and that of other Northwestern Europeans; and claimed itself as the protector of Germany from Jewish influence and corruption.

[Editor: Does this sound like certain world leaders today who keep bashing businesses as evil when THEY themselves are MORE responsible for the poor ecconomy?] 

"The Nazis persecuted those they perceived as either race enemies or Lebensunwertes Leben, that is "life unworthy of living". This included Jews, Slavs, Roma, and so-called "Mischlinge" along with Communists, homosexuals, the mentally and physically disabled, and others. The persecution reached its climax when the party and the German state which it controlled organized the systematic murder of approximately six million Jews and six million other people from the other targeted  groups, in what has become known as the Holocaust."

Does this sound like people who claim to want freedom but want to stifle the freedom of others?

Hitlerism - the great atheistic corruption of freedom started by individuals trying to shut those up that they didn't want to hear. Hopefully we are more sensible than that today. Or are we?

There are those in Canada who want to stifle "Fox News North" and those in the U.S. who want talk radio stifled because it is largely conservative and those liberals might just get their feelings hurt now and again.

Lurking totalitarianism attempts a coup?

Do I enjoy hearing an agnostic religionist rant on about the beliefs he has chosen? No. Do I defend his right to say them! A RESOUNDING, Yes! 

Do I enjoy listening to "news media" which actually having done no research, proclaims the next political prophet only to be disappointed when they discovered he was a snake-oil salesman instead? No! Do I defend his right to be heard!


We cannot stifle the comments we don't like to hear and retain freedom.

So I believe we have a clear choice. Do we silence those we disagree with? After so many in two world wars died for the freedoms of democracy, will we let them go so lightly?
