04 - SAY ANYTHING (Free Speech Part 1 of 2)

originally published 9 May 2016

MX AND I SPENT THE FIRST HOUR OF OUR RECORDING SESSION ARGUING ABOUT OUR PERSONAL PERSPECTIVES ON FREE SPEECH AND CENSORSHIP. I GET PRETTY PISSED OFF. MX IS ANNOYINGLY SOCRATIC.

FREE SPEECH IS ONE OF THOSE TOPICS THAT FEELS EASY TO UNDERSTAND SO MOST PEOPLE HAVE A VERY CLEAR OPINION ABOUT IT: PERFECT INGREDIENTS FOR CONFLICT. 

THIS WEEK ON OUR FACEBOOK PAGE WE SHARED FRANCHESCA RAMSEY'S VIDEO: "IS POLITICALLY CORRECT CULTURE ANTI-FREE SPEECH?" 

LISTENER PAUL COMMENTED "THIS IS NOT ONLY AGAINST FREE SPEECH, BUT THIS IS BLACKS BEING RACIST AGAINST WHITES AND JUSTIFYING IT ON AN INTERNATIONAL LEVEL."

MIX ASKED FOR SOME CLARIFICATION. PAUL ATTEMPTED A FLAME WAR. I CHIMED IN, TOO.
