"is there a chilling effect on DP?"--
I hadn't watched the video; I simply felt that it was important to state that on the above video of Susan Lindauer--
she mentions that it was a ruling from the federal government during WWI that was used to silence whistleblowers after 9/11--
I had been doing some studying about recent German immigrants during WWI and how they were treated here in the U.S. In many places, not well at all--
and if the Nazi threat had yet been seen by anyone in the U.S., I don't think many people talked about it.
I think it was on DP where I first read, "the first victim of war is truth"--
Those German immigrants came here out of desperation, and many of them believed in the American dream--
they believed in free speech, but their own rights were often ignored--
anyway, I was posting all this on the 'has the "chilling effect" come to DP?"--
and I was blocked.
I really am not interested in getting into the 'fight' that has seemed to be erupted on DP with regards to 'things I won't mention'--
I just realized that *we* are at war, if truth is crushed.
it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--
