    since society (or any community) and its moderators typically control the systems of power in these situations, given we're talking about a tolerant society, what for you would be an example of intolerant citizens/users using force?

    While many of us are redditors, this site is not meant to be a replacement/alternative for Reddit. For many it is, but that's not the site's goal. is your feed set to newest?

    the next couple lines are very key though. people that claim but muh free speech! are the exact ones he's talking about who are not prepared to meet us on the level of rational argument....

    the next couple lines are very key though.

    But we should claim the right to suppress them if necessary even by force; for it may easily turn out that they are not prepared to meet us on the level of rational argument, but begin by denouncing all argument...

    people that claim but muh free speech! are the exact ones he's talking about who are not prepared to meet us on the level of rational argument. censorship of hate speech isn't detrimental when the only goal is malicious and to test and push the levels backwards the levels of tolerance society is willing to accept. see also the people that try to slippery slope pedo acceptance in with gay/trans rights.

    they may forbid their followers to listen to rational argument, because it is deceptive, and teach them to answer arguments by the use of their fists or pistols

    this is interestingly applicable to modern politics in which the bar for tolerance has gotten so low/high that the climate has degraded into a very heated battle and not many people are able to have constructive conversations

    I wouldn't go as far as insane, but I'd try and take a really hard look at why you're not getting mixed signals on this. Thinking a Trump 2020 presidency would be a good idea is to be so ignorant...

    I've only been described as "insane" by most of the people I've discussed this with in person.
