Re: The Media and Emotions: A Critique of Mainstream Media Coverage of the Anti-DNC Protests

It is incumbent upon myself to educate my fellow Bostonians on a few matters. Censorship, whether placed in quotations or not, is defined as 'the institution, system, or practice of censoring.' Censoring is the gerundive form of of the verb 'to censor' which means, 'to examine in order to suppress or delete anything considered to be objectionable.' Therefore, my posts which have been suppressed have been censored. Only a coward or an ignoramus censors and yet claims not to censor.

A 'censor' is 'one of two magistrates of early Rome acting as inspectors of morals and conduct.' Rome was a fascist empire. Censors are fascists. It is impossible to be simultaneously a progressive and a fascist.

'Points of unity,' be they federal, confederal, web-based, or from the University Handbook are fascist insofar as they form a committee engaged in the suppression or deletion of ideas freely spoken. The form is 'Tyranny of the Demos' or strict majoritarianism (an idea ironic since IMC represents a majority of ultra-minority viewpoints). Strict majoritarianism is always either fascist or communist. Neither group is progressive.

I am a registered Independent who operates a radical centrist independent medium which services the rap community. The organization embodies independent media ethics and it is therefore only right and proper that I express my views at an Independent Media Center. Anything less would be to collapse under the weight of misguided collectivists who are regressive, not progressive -- in short, people who are unprincipled weaklings.
