Taxation by government is not theft. Taxation by government is that those to whom we delegate our defense, so we can do our work without always needing a hand on a weapon, get a cut of what we are then enabled to produce. Taxation by government BECOMES immoral, though not theft, when it exceeds a reasonable level and comes to harm the productivity we only delegate our defense to the government for in the first place.

Liberal academics have been using speech codes for years. They hear an idea they don't like and it makes them angry. But they don't quite know how to defeat the idea on its own merits. So instead of either a) taking the time to cool down and offer a rational response, or b) actually changing their view, they simply give in to the impulse to censor. That is why our campus speech codes really don't reduce so-called hate speech. They simply embolden those who hate speech.

I wish I could say that this childish inclination toward censorship is unique to liberal...
