Free speech: the last hope of free men.

Reader comment on item: "Rushdie Rules" Reach Florida

Submitted by Ralph C. Whaley MD (United States), Sep 21, 2010 at 11:31

America is the nation of Individual Rights. Every individual has the right to think for himself and guide his actions by his own independent thinking leaving every other man free to do the same. The fundemental requirement for humans living in society with other men is freedom from the inititation of force by any man or group of men. Freedom to express one's ideas orally or in writing is required as a protection from the establishment of a tyranny. When the right to disagree is lost it is time to take up arms and restore a moral government. America's government has been timid and submissive in the face of religious sanctions. Calling religion what it is, a superstiton, with no basis in reality leading inevitably to death and destruction of innocent human beings, must be defended by free men and their governments. Every individual has the right to be religious but none has the right to initiate force against others. A nation dedicated to establishing a tyranny of any form has no right to exist. Any free nation has the right to destroy such a naiton in righteous self defense of individual rights and human life. Iran and Saudi Arabia are top of the list for destruction.
