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.

American Public University System


An Egregious Aberrancy


At a for-profit university, the First Amendment

automatically becomes something to be ignored 

or, if someone does not wish to abide by that 

fundamental for-profit principle, 

then he shall be punished for exercising his basic human rights. 

The shame and hypocrisy of American Military University 

incarnates that principle, 

for a university should never be run like the military, 

which somehow manages to simultaneously position itself 

as protector of freedom, while punishing freedom 

whenever it might appear within its ranks.  

American Military University does not mandate workshops on freedom,

but rather on rubrics grading and student retention,

and pushes oddities like dyke studies, though PC-conformity 


is certainly not a manifestation of freedom of thought…
