"Paradox of Tolerance" (Off-Topic)

Sure. But I don't advocate total tolerance. We still have laws and a justice system and trials and jails and the death penalty. I'm even for laying down fair, due process based punishments for extreme speech as long as a massively high bar is maintained. Walking up and punching someone for any speech is never ok, though. We should be a just country of laws... not one that condones harming people just because you disagree with them.

I say keep the state out of it. If we can't figure out how to handle it as individuals and communities, that's on us.
