You could look for other threads which already have a related subject, or failing that to have one thread that holds articles that you find interesting. You do find good articles that support your world view, but you seem unable to have others read your articles without using unacceptable tactics.

Free speech is meaningless unless it tolerates the speech that we hate.

Yes, but speech can be good and bad, effective or ineffective too. There are diverse world views. There are few places where radically different ones are exchanged. I would like to encourage it. You seem determined to reduce free speech? You seem to shun the community? Your approach is clearly a poor one,

One of the reasons the US is collapsing now is that Americans think that decay will be stopped by becoming Fascists and Communists.

Americans think the US will be improved by expanding wars, increasing the debt, and adding more tyranny when the reason the USA is crashing is because the US has wars, is in debt, and has a police state.

Americans say that they love freedom, but then they turn around and say they need the government to give them free Obamacare, build a wall, protect the US from Yemen, wiretap their phones, arrest people for feeding the homeless, stop farmers from plowing fields, force people to get rid of dogs, ban vaping, and torture suspects.

Every country has the government it deserves.

Some countries outlaw Nazi slogans, rhetoric, songs, and gestures -- in countries in which Nazism brought ruin and shame. In such countries such is considered no loss of freedom.

Meetings between extremists on both sides ordinarily degenerate into shouting matches in which political invective degenerates into fighting words such as "Death to the Klan!" or "Kill the Communists before they kill again!" I see a part of what used to be the mainstream of American life becoming increasingly intolerant and angry.

I see no way to tone down the anger of the American right, including people who used to be 'moderates'. The Generational Cycle will either exalt them to crushing power over all else or discredit them completely. Stay tuned to the news. I wish I could be watching this unfold from a civilized country like Switzerland, or at least one in which people know what the denial of freedom means (degradation of all that is human) and would never tolerate dictatorship again. We Americans are too naive to realize with what dangerous forces we toy.

History is an obscene tale written mostly with the blood of innocent people even if those are heroes.
The ideal subject of totalitarian rule is not the convinced Nazi or the dedicated Communist  but instead the people for whom the distinction between fact and fiction, true and false, no longer exists -- Hannah Arendt.

Like slaves, Americans beg for their chains.

The elites tell Americans that they don't need freedom and Americans nod their heads and agree that they don't need freedom.

The 1% says that if vaping is not banned, Americans will get cancer.

The elites say that if flag-burning is not banned, Americans will have freedom.

The elites say that churches must be closed because of terrorism.

The elites say that protesting must be banned because protesters will break windows.

The ruling class says that newspapers must be closed because only the government can tell you the truth.

The elites say there must be subsidies or every company will go bankrupt.

The elites say that Americans must be forced to buy insurance or they will not get healthcare.

The 1% says that Americans must get food stamps or everyone will starve to death.

The ruling class say that everyone must be wiretapped, tortured, and groped or there will be terrorism.

The elites say that if withdrawing cash from your own bank account is not banned, Americans will buy drugs.

The elites say that if restaurants are not licensed, businesses would have a vested interest in selling poisoned food.

The elites say that if guns are not banned, Americans will be shot.

The elites say that if everyone does not give DNA samples to the government then little girls will be raped.

The elites say that if hammers are not banned, Americans will have their heads smashed in with hammers.

Americans are so enslaved now that if anyone warns about the dangers of tyranny, the patriots will be slammed for criticizing the beloved overlords of Americans.

Every country has the government it deserves.
