The former president of the Muslim student assoc. at the U. of Missouri says the movie "American Sniper" must be banned because she feels threatened by its portrayal of Muslims. Does our freedom from terror make us more safe or less safe?
Banning free speech is not the right course of action. Nobody who values our collective liberties would suggest banning a film just because they dont like the context.
Do our civil rights make us more or less safe? Sorry, it was worded very poorly.
Oh! Well then: Neither.
I have no idea what this is supposed to mean...
Do our civil rights make us more or less safe? Sorry, I worded it in a really confusing way.
There is always a tug of war between freedom and order (safety). The more of one you want, the more of the other you give up.
I had a class with that girl. Interesting take, donno if I agree or not.
Your statement has no connection to the question.
Do our civil rights make us safer or less safe? That's basically what I was trying to ask.
"Freedom from terror"?
Yeah. I confused as to what is asked in the poll too.
Terrorists attempt to suppress our civil rights.
I contend terrorists aren't attempting to suppress our civil rights but that our Gov't reacts in such a way as to have that outcome. I don't feel any more safe at the airport with the TSA.
Well, the TSA is likely unconstitutional, despite what the Supreme Court says, but I wouldn't put them on the same level as ISIS.
That's nutty. If you don't like the portrayal, live in a way that changes the perception and then seek to change the what people think. I don't understand victimhood. King got that. Be who you want to people to perceive.
I agree. But I'm confused as to what the question in the poll actually asked.
Yes. Me too. I read it a few times and came up less as my answer and this comment.
Terrorists attempt to suppress our civil rights. Are we more free with civil rights or without them? Sorry, perhaps that wasn't clear.
Also, do our civil rights make us safer or less safe?
Got it. I'll change my vote. She's still nutty though.
It's a really interesting question.
Thanks. Sorry it wasn't asked clearly.
I'm *still* confused. Are you saying the woman in the article is a terrorist? Because I'm not seeing that. But she's the one who seems to be trying to suppress civil rights, so I assume you're referring to her. I also don't think I agree that she
No, I'm not saying that the woman is a terrorist. I'm asking if civil rights make us more or less safe.
is suppressing civil rights. Your poll question says the movie "must be banned," but I'm not seeing that in the article; she's saying that it's not a good idea to show it *at that university,* and there's a big difference.
OK, then I really don't understand the question at all. It just seems very nebulous to me, & I'm not sure how to analyze it.
Basically, is freedom really free?
