"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.

Ideally the state is controlled by our communities...
