"Until those with power and access decide that it’s beneficial to truly educate people, and make it possible to get an education without going into crushing debt, then the mutt people here in the heartland will keep on electing dangerous dimwits in cowboy boots.”
And is it asking too much that we go back to using the word "entitlement" to mean something that one deserves or has earned? For example, if I put in a day's work, I am entitled to a day's pay. Or if I am ticketed for speeding, I am entitled to my day in court. Or if I pay into Social Security and Medicare for my entire working life, I am entitled to receive benefits from these programs when I retire. When did "entitlement" come to mean "giveaways and freebies for people who don't deserve them"?
This isn't the first time a perfectly good English language word or term has been hijacked for political purposes.
There is a fine line between censorship, good taste and moral responsibility.
“What is freedom of expression? Without the freedom to offend, it ceases to exist.”
― Salman Rushdie
Censorship is never over for those who have experienced it.
It is a brand on the imagination that affects the individual who has suffered it, forever.
