Why Free Speech is Necessary even for Progressives
25 Aug 2004
Free Speech is necessary EVEN on progressive websites like the IMC because if our leaders are becoming big stinking socialists, and Independent media proposes stinking socialism as a solution to those leaders, SOMEONE must propose an ideology that will break the feedback loop and save us from third column fascism.
This is difficult when those who claim to represent a certain area, such as Boston, think that their shit smells like roses, and their from of censorship is "for the greater good" Independent factions are not by nature permitted to work for a collectivist greater good. They are by nature only entitled to work toward a plurality of good. There is no real electoral process at IMC, and consequently any "consensus" is determined by the webmaster. IMC should be called The Webmasters Narrow Synthesis Media Center.

Equality, respect and environment. Is a start to understanding your surroundings.
Drop bigotry. You'll see the light!
