Okay, now the diatribe is turning into something I can really sink my
teeth into. :) You say freedom of speech is disappearing, I say it's
been gone since the first government sponsored school was created.
What's the purpose of freedom of speech when the gov't has so
infiltrated the thought process of the citizens? In America, at least,
gov't sponsored education is technically illegal. But then again, so is
federal gun control, yet it exists....*sigh*
You [should] not examine legislation in the light of the benefits it
will convey if properly administered, but in the light of the wrongs it
would do and the harm it would cause if improperly administered
