    like I'm not one of those who says existence isn't a logical predicate (property) of things, otherwise we wouldn't be able to talk about this stuff. the problem is existence itself is a linguistic predicate (and logic is nothing but linguistic) and God by nature is absolute negativity and cannot be reduced to discourse. So to then argue an ideal of free speech is tantamount to God is to argue that free speech cannot be quantified and even defended. and we are back to plutocracy, meritocracy and kleptocracy of all sorts. it's window dressing for something radically old hat and hoary. really boring!

There's a demented wind blowing.

    I wonder if it's even possible to stand outside it as a public figure though? Can you really be a neutral?

    What would it mean to be neutral?

    It would mean you don't believe in the existing structures and you are trying to work outside of them. Sure, people will try to push you through the holes. But...
