Society : "Censorship"
I have heard a proposal to "supprime," delete in English, the thread on either guns prohibition or Islam (it's unclear which), both important issues. I understand that some issues are sensitive and people would rather not talk about them just because they are distressing. Ignoring issues, however, will produce a far more grievous outcome and a more long-lasting period of hardship than the brief comfort allowed by a moment of blissful ignorance.
I encourage everyone to be patient, be polite, and have fortitude. If we strive toward these qualities in our discourse, then we will avoid discomfort while we share our opinions.
I hope there is no one here who will argue for censorship; this thread is only intended as a gentle nudge in the right direction, and not an invitation for debate.
I hope my message is not repugnant in that it sounds condescending; by no means does it imply that I embody the qualities that I am advocating for or that I am any better than anyone else. That is self-evidently false and arrogant.
