"When the individual revolts against tradition and authority, when instinct and desire are exalted above reason, when intellect is subordinated to will, when all desires become lawful and no standard is left for choosing among them, then at last a master-passion, as leader of the soul. Takes madness for the captain of its guard and breaks out in frenzy; if it can lay hold upon any thoughts or desires that are of good report and still capable of shame, it kills them or drives them forth, until it has purged the soul of all sobriety and called in the partisans of madness to fill the vacant place. ~John H. Hallowell
I'm very interested in Q but I still have reservations. If someone is ambivalent they are not "disruptors" ("racist", "homophobes") or any other epithet thrown out to Quell Questions or Quash discussion. Please allow free discussion on freerepublic.
The same people show up on the threads, and they bait, taunt, and yes - disrupt the REAL discussion with their selfish and childish antics. They fill the thread with their victim hood and false self-righteous blather. And its not just a one time occurrence. Oh no sir! Every. Single. Day - on multiple threads.
You may have convinced yourself you are defending actual free thought and discussion. Actually, you are defending those that are trashing and mocking the forum and other members who are the real victims of the trolls.
