Freedom Of Expression

I found this quote on rense.com:

If we don’t believe in freedom of expression for people we despise, we don’t believe in it at all.

- Noam Chomsky

Although the word ‘despise’ is a bit overboard the intent still comes across pretty well.

It’s like the freezone and it’s stumbling in the dark. I don’t have a problem with it at all as they are certainly entitled to do as they please.

On the other hand it’s quite funny to see the freezone go instantly insane when they find something which disagrees with them. Imagine my surprise when the ever-popular freezone tech king Hilton proclaimed that everyone should remove their links to fza.org or that even though fza.org is not under his control, it should be.

I’ll not go into the historical background on those items but I still find them to be quite humorous.

freezone-related editors screwing up FZA’s search engine listing is another big laugh for me. Hunsaker’s theft of the entire site is another. The list just goes on and on with the freezone and it all means diddly squat to me.

There are those who find their way here despite all the freezone’s efforts to the contrary. There are serious beings out there and it is to these few brave souls that FZA is here at all. The rest of humanity is busy enough already with their narcissistic dream of dreams why become the whipping boy by telling them it just ain’t so. It’s far better to give one’s attention to those who are serious, not those who are playing at being serious, but those who are intently deep down consumed with being Free.

It’s not for everyone that is for sure.

Neither is FZA. So when hardened hearts proclaim law it means diddly squat here as anyone and everyone has the right to their own thoughts, ideas and concepts and to play it out anyway they so choose.
