    According to Is Progressive Ideology Incompatible With The First Amendment?, progressives, represented here by Seldman, would answer progressivism is incompatible with free speech.
    I think globalism/neo-liberalism is incompatible with most Enlightenment values. This is hard for most conservatives to accept because it runs counter-intuitive to our "market positive" generalities. (Yes, I consider myself a conservative, mostly.)

    There is so much talk from both sides about taking away freedoms, and nobody wants to admit they are just as guilty of the same $#@!.
    This is a junk topic.

    Freedom of speech is now and always has been used as a weapon by both sides. As it was intended by the Founders. If it were ever dissolved we would lose another pillar in our founding and stability as a Republic.

    I disagree. The OP is a top tier contributor to discussions here. Shoo, you marginalized political loser.

    It's a constitutional; question not an historical subject.

    It touches on law but is really a history of progressive's antagonism toward free speech.
