‘Not every opinion is valid’: Free speech wall torn down

http://news.nationalpost.com

I think that this story speaks for itself, but this is another story highlighting an attack against free speech at Universities. I recently graduated from Carleton University and I wish I could say that these kind of events were rare. This piece has many priceless quotes including “Only someone who had gone to university could write something so utterly stupid,” referring to the public explanation given by the individual who tore down the free speech wall.

Much more in the news article itself, but you have to read it to believe it.

The mock tweeters include one councilman’s moustache. Another from the handle Laughable Loll cracked, “I shined my head extra special for tonight so the camera would reflect off of it.” Not laughing is the local prosecutor.

Jailed for remaining silent.

http://www.salon.com

A third person is now in jail for remaining silent in front of a grand jury. This is stemming from the same incident in Portland in which authorities raided a house looking for black clothing and "anarchist" literature. Though the 3 have not been charged with crimes themselves they are now all in prison for not testifying.

Governmental Secrecy: Shield for Tyranny, Incompetence, and Corruption

Governmental Secrecy: Shield for Tyranny, Incompetence, and Corruption

An essential pillar of democracy is openness. There is no way that people can meaningfully participate in government, even if only by voting for representatives, if they do not have access to accurate information related to government operations. This was well understood by the founders of the US and embedded in the Bill of Rights. Conversely, a salient characteristic of undemocratic systems of all types, such as Czarist Russia, the Soviet Union, and Nazi Germany is a high degree of governmental secrecy.
