We Should Never Grow Tired of Saying ‘I Told You So’

**I wrote this three years ago, look at the last sentence**

If I made the statement right now that this society is in a culture war I don’t think anyone reading this would argue with me. I know that a lot of you would say that free speech is under attack, but understand that basic freedoms are as well. If Free Speech drops, everything goes away and I mean everything.

When I went to college what seems like a century ago nobody was declaring, “you can’t say that.” On the contrary, free speech was encouraged and everybody was asked to speak up and say what was on their mind. That seemed to take a drastic turn in the last 20 years.

The meme above is an accurate depiction of what is happening on college campuses today. Any student who says something that is outside of the protective bubble they have put up is immediately shouted down and typically tagged a “Nazi.” The theory is that if they can label you the worst of all things, the “racist Nazi,” you are completely discredited and anything further coming out of your mouth is hate speech.

Even if you were to somehow “win the day,” they will just change the rules and BOOM, you’re a Nazi again!

This is not only happening on college campuses but many of these tyrants have graduated and taken up home in H.R. departments all throughout commerce.
