Your comments are very timely.
I didn't realize how recent the notion of 'free speech' is. I guess growing up with a notion that 'free speech' is a right has made me think it's always been that way.
But what has actually 'always been that way' is slandering, deceit, and lies on a cosmic scale. We find it first in the garden of Eden when the Ancient Serpent slanders God; we find it in Jesus's time when he tells his opponents, "You are of your father the devil." And we certainly find it now.


Immediately after posting this, I saw that the G.O.P. officially declared Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol ‘Legitimate Political Discourse.’
