    John Stuart Mill 1859 “ON LIBERTY”
    ““He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them. But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion… Nor is it enough that he should hear the opinions of adversaries from his own teachers, presented as they state them, and accompanied by what they offer as refutations. He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them…he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.”

    They renamed Lafayette Square? That’s just plain wrong, if you want a BLM Plaza, make another one.

    So many people haven’t caught on to the difference between “civil rights” & “civil war”. Especially the swamp whisperer & his trolls… Justice Matters… Glenn Kirshner 🇺🇸⚖️⚖️🇺🇸😷

    They sell to us as racial discrimination…..it’s actually monetary/class discrimination.

    As soon as people mention the on going genocide of indigenous people of America, it either gets ignored or it gets denied and then dismissed. Time to address all things needing to be acknowleged. Please don’t hesitate to educate yourself on Native American issues. Land is still being stolen, rights are still being refused, and so on. 🙏 let’s make an a inclusive future with kindness and happiness for everybody. Without ego and greed we can make it better.

    Voting against anti-lynching law? In 2021, anywhere in the world? I truly can not believe this!!!! And yet white “boogaloos”?? in Michigan can threaten to kidnap and possibly assassinate the Governor, while the rioters at the Capitol chanted “Kill Mike Pence”.

    Hey America, WTF?

    These are all outstanding interviews but, am I the only one who would like to hear a reTrumplican attempt to justify their position(s)? Personally, I’m bewildered that any intelligent person can take the stances these folks have taken, but there are 70million of them out there, led by the idiots at FOX-n-fiends, several reTrumplican senators (Cruz, Graham, etc), and it really bothers me that people VOTED INTO OFFICE can take their positions, and I’d like to hear a super-interviewer get some answers OR see a network get some kind of controlled debate set up so we can get some answers and (maybe) some insight. Or, am I way off base?

    He needs to rethink his views on vaping nicotine as harm reduction. The science is in, watch “You Don’t Know Nicotine” and educate yourself. Listen to those who have smoked most of their lives and quit on the first day that they picked up a flavored electronic nicotine delivery system. It will save half a million Americans per year. In NJ, we can ruin our lives by gambling, we can get alcohol in ice cream and seltzer in flavors BUT flavored nicotine (equal to caffeine) is too far.?
