American Ironies


Thanks for that response.  It sucks that you have to work with individuals so hostile to speech they disagree with.  One of the great ironies in our country right seems to be the complicated relationship self-proclaimed patriots have with uniquely American values, like nearly uninhibited free speech.  They're all about freedom and democracy until it starts opening their worldview up to perspectives that run contrary to their religious or nationalistic tenets.  They're terrified at the prospect of true diversity. 

I'm actually working on my senior Political Science thesis paper today, and it is very relevant to what we're talking about here.  I'll share it with you when I'm finished.
