Because then YOU (and the government) ARE STEALING from me to do what YOU may consider Good works, But I do NOT. If YOU want to "help the poor and the sick" then make SURE they are really POOR and NOT LAZY and that they are no "sick" due to their own choices. Now, when you DO help them, use YOUR money and NOT mine. Do you understand or do you need a picture drawn in crayon?

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...
