The Year Is 1984

"First the practical: If you don’t want your words broadcast in the public square, don’t say them. The Orwellian taint to this advice is not meant to be harsh, but is offered in recognition of the world in which we live. We’re not so much a global village as a small town of gossips."

"On a higher note, such potential exposure forces us to more carefully select our words and edit our thoughts. This isn’t only a matter of survival but is essential to civilization. Speaking one’s mind isn’t really all it’s cracked up to be, as any well-balanced person reading the comments section quickly concludes."

HAC, seriously... you're an OK guy, a little crazy, but your heart's in the right place,

But, many many people more famous and influential than you have warned the White Man about Thoughtcrime and their imminent peril. If they're not going to listen to them, if they won't heed Orwell's famous advice, they're not going to listen to you and its far far too late.
