The Risk of Saying What You Believe
The other most basic function of government is to protect the right of free speech.
But that has been declining for a long time now.
The only real free speech today is that which the mainstream media and the progressive academic establishment approves. All dissent to the contrary carries great risk.
To speak out against any of the popular protests today will bring dire consequences. Which is why even most Conservatives are silent today. Because they know that the mob will come to their house.
Even to their walled and security-patrolled houses.
And then what will they do?
They will bow the knee.
