Fred Poirier’s New Blog
My loyal blogging buddy and defender of the faith “more Democracy and less Hypocrisy” Fred Poirier has a new blog. Check it out here or you can get to it from my side bar under ‘Sites of Interest’.
I admire those who stand up (under their own name and all, especially) and speak out. Whether the person is right or wrong on what he/she is talking about, at least you heard their opinion, while at the same time allowing them to be heard. After all, we all want to be heard… it’s part of human nature and at the very core of what a democracy is suppose to be all about. Right? But when the media try to control the conversation by limiting what is allowed to be said… well then, democracy is being challenged and therefore like Fred, we should all stand up and be counted in defending it.
You measure a democracy by the freedom it gives its dissidents, not the freedom it gives its assimilated conformists.
