Outside of being just about the most blatant anti-democracy anti-freedom action a governing body can take, banning a word is simply useless in helping or protecting anyone. Ban the word â€œniggerâ€, ok, just say â€œmigger.â€ Whatâ€™s the point? The sentiment behind a word lives on and will come out in verbal form some way or another. To think a problem is solved because someone is not allowed to say a word is just plain stupid!
It is embarrassing that we live in a nation that bleeps the word â€œgodâ€ when used in conjunction with the word â€œdamn.â€ How sill is it that the censors decided that the word â€œgodâ€ was the offensive part of that little phrase? Is it just me or is that just plain ridicules?Â Our overlords have decided that we can watch dramatic re-enactments of or documented reports of real rape, adultery, drug and alcohol usage, cigarettes cigarettes and more cigarettes, serial killers, killing, killing, killing, war, war, war, etc. But we can not hear a person utter â€˜oh shitâ€ when they slam a car door on their finger!
Words represent feelings. Words represent human expression. Words represent humanity; good and bad. If you are afraid or words you are afraid of reality. And if a word offends you the problem is greater than the collection of letters that represent the sentiment. Address the real problems behind the words that bother you; leave the poor little words alone because words represent your freedom. Ban words and you are truly no longer free.Â Â Think about it!
