Skeptic Welcome new mudcatter MAV (130* d) RE: Welcome new mudcatter MAV 12 Mar 01


The simple answer to those who are disturbed by Mav's views is don't read them. His views are not unique, either to Mudcat or the country. He does tend to get more spirited than some in his defense, but then that's true of most people when our sacred cows are jabbed, as witness some of the responses to his posts

While I wish I could share the certainty some seem to have about the absolute rightness of thier beliefs, as my sign-on implies, there is always room to question.

I followed an dcontributed to Mav's political postings from the beginning and can't really say who started "flaming". It looks like Mav made some inflammatory statements that may or may not have been meant as such, people took offense, decided it ws flaming which it may have been) and flamed, Mav flamed back and away it went.

May I humbly (yeah, right) suggest a status quo antebellum?

And leave you with this thought:

Those who begin coercive elimination of dissent soon find themselves exterminating dissenters. Compulsory unification of opinion achieves only the unanimity of the graveyard. Justice Robert Jackson Barnette vs West Virgina, 1943

A sentiment Max seems to have taken to heart.
