This has been an especially toxic, divisive election year. I have thought a lot about ... what next. I am 99% confident that our next president will be Hillary Clinton, but I have to wonder ... will that be the end of the hate speech that is so prevalent today? It is hard to imagine that Trump will simply slink back into his dark cave and never be heard from again (though one can always hope). Blogger-friend Hugh wrote an excellent post on just this topic, so rather than re-invent the wheel, I ask you to take a minute and read his post, drop in and leave a comment ... or two!

Lefties are often criticised for being regressive. I’m going to address the most common criticisms against us so-called ‘regressive lefties’: (1) that lefties are ‘against’ freedom of speech in that they tolerate views that conform with progressive thought but shun, ban and label those to voice non-conformist thought; (2) that lefties silence opposition; (3)that lefties are actually the racists and bigots of society, in that they preach inclusivity but give special treatment to certain groups in society such as women and ethnic minorities, thereby discriminating on the basis of race or gender rather than an individual’s merit, character and quality of ideas, and lastly that; (4) meritocracy is better than affirmative action. 1,338 more words
