AUTHORS AND AUTHORS TODAY NEED TO GROW SOME XXXXX AND ACT UP!
Those who signed the American Declaration of Independence were considered traitors and risked capital punishment. They were indeed brave.
Here is a good article on treason.
But what about artists and authors today — or persons who post demeaning things online against leaders, prophets or God? Artists/cartoonists, authors/playwrights etc. often display great courage in their art and writing. The long arm of legal liability is no longer merely local or national, and limits on freedom of speech and expression are increasingly diffuse in a globalized and multicultural world. It is in the interests of all that artists, authors and thinkers have freedom of expression. We are soon facing intrusions on freedom of thought.
Here is a good article on freedom of speech.

Stop the genocide!
#StopTheHate. Stop blaming “bad peoples”, “bad interpretations of religion” and “bad ethnicities”. Solve the problem of blind collective animosity, and silence the advocates of hateful philosophies, doctrines and behaviour, outlaw corruption and impoverishment … along with assault weapons, assault drones and bombs, and enslaving financial power schemes. Make hate crimes and hate speech illegal. Teach love and acceptance instead of fear and tolerance.
#StopTheHate — NOW!
WE CAN’T BREATHE!
(but are we choking ourselves???)
