Re-read”On Liberty”, for the 3rdtime. It is the greatest treatise on Free Speech ever written, published in 1859, but prescient for the politics of today.

If you've never read it, it delves into the suppression of speech by forces such as government and the tyranny of the majority (public opinion), to include the stifling of speech with the use of labels. Heresy & blasphemy were the dogmatic supression terms of the past, is ”X-phobia” the dogmatic term(s) of today? 🤔

Definitely worth reading!
