I’ve always supported free speech, away from censorship…. but people are using free speech to spread hate and disharmony. ALL lives matter, human animal and even vegetable all lives matter.
Our history good and bad is recorded in statues all statues matter good and bad. Its only through history that we learn our mistakes and we have all made mistakes “let he who is without sin cast the first stone”
As “WANABE” Buddhist I value all life and yes I value free speech as my blog www.crazybritblog.com should demonstrate (couldn’t miss the opportunity of a free ad).
But seriously, these ‘protests’ are so divisive they are going to backlash and that will only cause more pain and troubles for our world. WE/YOU have far more important issues to address than whether a particular statue offends you. IF it does ignore it! IF what people write ignore it! But IF you care check what you post, and as HH the Dalai Llama would probably say be happy.
