If you're a fan of open discourse, here's a rare breath of fresh air from the New York Times this week:

"the boundaries of public discourse have become so proscribed as to make impossible frank discussions of anything remotely controversial."

"Of course, the whole notion of drawing lines to keep people out is exactly what inspired the Intellectual Dark Web folks in the first place. They’re committed to the belief that setting up no-go zones and no-go people is inherently corrupting to free thought."

"the only way you can construe a group of intellectuals talking to each other as dangerous is if you are scared of what they might discover."


...For millions of years man had lived just like the animals
then something happened which unleashed the power of the imagination
we learned to talk.
It doesn't have to be like this
all we need to do
is make sure
we keep talking
