I've just discovered (on somebody else's Facebook page) that it's not because I don't spell everything out that people insist on attacking me for things that I didn't actually say. The truth is that even if you do spell everything out very clearly, with lots of "of course I don't means" and that sort of thing people will still attack you for things you didn't actually say. Unless you absolutely tow the party line the gatekeepers of liberalism (and I expect the gatekeepers of conservatism if you happen to be in that camp) will go for you like African hunting dogs descending on their prey.
These gatekeepers deliberately close down all discussion by their rabid responses to any suggestion of an alternative scenario and are killing the Enlightenment vision. You see it on Facebook, you see it in academia, among artists and scientists, philosophers and theologians. You see it in the media and it is most apparent in our political institutions from the grass roots all the way up to the United Nations.
