Criminalize Actions, Not Words


"Offense, Rose argues, is the price of living in a free society." An excellent profile on Flemming Rose, the Danish cartoonist who gained notoriety by publishing a series of satirical cartoons featuring various aspects of Islam, is featured in The Atlantic. For anyone concerned with the curtailing of speech in our time, it is very much worth reading.

“One of the things that I’m worried about is the erosion of the distinction between

words and deeds and how this opens the way to criminalize words.”

~Flemming Rose

Blerkins
 
THE BEST-NAMED BLOG ON THE INTERNET
Blerkins is an eclectic blog of scholarly reflection and cultural commentary for folks who still believe that Western civilization has merit; and that life is far too interesting to give up on, or waste on television.
Our audience tends to be people exasperated with the world but too idealistic to give up on cultural engagement; who swim in a world seemingly devoid of truth, yet are too ethical for hedonism.

 

Witty. Wroth. Western.
