A Forum for Vigorous Debate, Cornerstone of Democracy

***********************************************************************************************************************************
A FORUM FOR FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND VIGOROUS DEBATE, CORNERSTONES OF DEMOCRACY
[For the journal (guidelines, focus, etc.), go to www.theamericandissident.org ].
Encouraged censorship and self-censorship seem to have become popular in America today. Those who censor others, not just self, tend to favor the term "moderate," as opposed to "censor" and "moderation" to "censorship." But that doesn't change what they do. They still act as Little Caesars or Big Brother protectors of the thin-skinned. Democracy, however, demands a tough populace, not so easily offended. On this blog, and to buck the trend of censorship, banning, and ostracizing, comments are NEVER "moderated." Rarely (almost NEVER) do the targets of these blog entries respond in an effort to defend themselves with cogent counter-argumentation. This blog is testimony to how little academics, poets, critics, newspaper editors, cartoonists, political hacks, cultural council apparatchiks, librarians et al appreciate VIGOROUS DEBATE, cornerstone of democracy. Clearly, far too many of them could likely prosper just fine in places like communist China and Cuba or Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Russia.

To Publisher Ian Singer, Editorial Director Rebecca Miller, Editor-at-Large John N. Berry III, Senior Editor Meredith Schwartz and all the many other editors, Library Journal: 

A new P. Maudit cartoon, satirizing Library Journal, has just been published on The American Dissident blog site:    http://wwwtheamericandissidentorg.blogspot.com/2014/03/ian-singer.html.  You should be ashamed of your role as censoring gatekeepers of bourgeois propriety.  But of course you’re not.  You’re just smug PC-clones.  If you had any notion of what democracy truly entails, you’d publish the cartoon in Library Journal.  BUT you operate not FOR democracy: you work AGAINST democracy.  In every issue, I publish the harshest critique vis-à-vis The American Dissident.  What’s the big deal?  Well, you’d have to ask your own frail egos!
