Coming together and coming apart

When you silence those with whom you disagree, you take on the risk of imposed suppression in the backlash.

Backlash will always be with us. History demonstrates that pendulum never fails to swing.

You have a right to voice this opinion because principled men and women who came before you stood for those with unpopular and even hateful views.

Do not destroy their sacrifice with a call to suppress speech — any speech — or you will live to regret it when your own voice is silenced.
