Then tell me, who is to regulate what constitutes a free flow of information. Ben Carson ?

so you have no clue as to what we are talking about, fair enough.

No one but reason itself if the free flow of information and opinions is not only allowed but also respected. The young kids you talk about liking Bernie's smoke screen of free health care and free college education ought to know some one is going to still pay for that stuff still, likely will still be them along with the rest of us. But how would they know any better if there is no alternative view point saying or being respected otherwise? They're going with the trend, not reason.
Thanks from Sabcat

There is a substantial demographic of college students today that are a special kind of stupid with no discernible potential to benefit society. They are a wholesale production of wards of the state. They are a drain on society and will always be a drain. They have been programmed from an early age to de-evolve into invertebrates, primarily from the everybody gets a trophy.

The political correctness is just the tip of the iceberg. They need government protection from being exposed to anything that may hurt their chronic hypersensitivity. They cannot and will not be challenged and have a clinical phobia to opposing opinions. They protest to the point of mania regarding commencement speakers who do not share their perverse worldview until they cancel to make way for a speaker that will not expose them to opposing views.

They are assembly-line manufactured losers manufactured by their parents and universities and will always lose when challenged.
Thanks from caconservative

Let's see if I understand. Lyzza is actually/currently ON A college campus--taking graduate classes--every day---for years. Lyzza tells us what she has experienced on HER college campuses--in her political science class, debates, etc. AND....wait for it....her argument is a problem because it's her existing *belief*?? Wow---her daily experiences are her beliefs? Not facts, but belief?
Okay--here we go back to 3rd grade again and please find a dictionary. Ask for one for your birthday, please.
Belief: Belief is the state of mind in which a person thinks something to be the case, with or without there being empirical evidence to prove that something is the case with factual certainty.
Truth: that which is true or in accordance with fact or reality--fact, verity, certainty, certitude.
I realize these are BiG big big words and no photos or illustrations, but do your best. If an 8 year old can grasp it, surely you can too.
Thanks from Lyzza
