Wow!

Go Rowan!

 

I am afraid that his point of view will upset Stuart, though

without getting into a lot of specifics I've had the experience of reading your posts here on TankNet for many years.  We've both been here a long time.

In aggregate your positions are not in line with Mr Atkinson.  I'm not  subscribing positions to you,  I am aware of the posts that you have made over the years and especially the the last few.

You tend towards censorship.  There's no denying it.  It is a fact. 

The chief difference is that I accept your beliefs on the subject whilst disagreeing with them.  I have the added positive of being very consistent in my position.  I tend to stay away from the duels between you and Ryan but I do read them.  I just don't post there very much.

 

I'm not saying anything about anything other than Mr Atkinson's position and your overall position are very far apart.  I was very impressed with Mr Atkinson's speech and thought it a model of clarity on the subject.  I was surprised that it was a 7 year old speech, it sounded like last week, very current.

 

If you feel like Mr Atkinson is accurate in his summation then you'll need to review some of your earlier work.

Stuart doesn't disagree with Rowan, he disputes that any censorship is even happening. 

'There is no censorship. If there was, it be ok because we censored people talking about convoy sailings during an existential total war situation that we're not in now. But there is no censorship.'

That's a perfectly clear summation of your views as I've been able to glean just from your latest post and relatively recent examples on the subject Stuart.

Stuart, I'd really like to see you go down and talk face to face to Sargon. Hopefully you'd do a better job of it than this posh kid.

At its root a government is just a body with the power to make decisions for the whole population. How they come to that power is determined by their authority to govern. In a Democracy it is granted by the people. In a dictatorship it is held by force. In a monarchy it is granted by God.

Contribute to the thread Bojan, or dont, the choice is yours. Personally I dont expect the sneering from  yourself. Its a poor fit.

And its a fair point, Id be happy to talk to him if I ever bump into him. The problem is in person im shy and tounge tied. Its only over a keyboard I actually achieve any kind of loquacity.

 

I really ought to go to an I and I, I know there is no way you are going to believe that. :D
