"Banning people from publicly stating their views does not make those views disappear."
What banning does do is:
"blind us to the existence of the attitude that he articulates."
"Let us hear the argument put forward by those with whom we disagree, so that we can expand our knowledge and show rational resistance. This problem is getting worse and worse. we're in danger of making censorship the standard response to any view which offends. Unless someone is breaking the law by inciting with their words, I believe it is a crime not to hear them."
Well said Julie!
