Topic For Today: ”Expression”
I have been cursed with one of those ‘tell all’ faces. I can’t play poker and I certainly can’t hide what I am thinking and feeling inside. I wish I could have a face that showed less expression but I’m afraid I am stuck with it. Maybe the wind changed?
Freedom of Speech or Freedom of Expression is quite a popularly discussed subject. It is often the excuse used by racists for expressing their hateful views and expecting their victims to ‘suck it up’. Freedom of expression cannot and should not apply to Hateful people who wish to incite further hatred.
But this guy (below) does have a point.
Have a think for a moment. We all have views and opinions and that is all well and good, but do you respect and accept other people have different views to yours? Are you happy with them expressing them?
Do you have friends who vote for a different party? Or hold a very different view with regards to other issues of the day? We should be able to accept and respect others and have friends we can have an open and friendly discussion with. If you answered those questions as NO, then maybe you need to consider the fact that YOU do not believe in Freedom of Expression at all, unless it’s yours…..
I’m being rather controversial, aren’t I?
Well maybe you’d like this quote better:

Feel no pressure to take part if you don’t want to, but if you think the subject is interesting, they why not have a go?
All the best
