    Leaving the current events alone, because I don’t think I can convince anyone who doesn’t already believe that Trump was at least partially responsible, I keep hearing people talk about the “cry fire in a crowded theater” line. This worries me because of its history. The phrase originally comes from the arguments from a Supreme Court case about WW1 pacifists, Schenk v United States, which ruled that Schenk’s distribution of anti-war literature was not protected by free speech. Not to mention that Holmes himself also argued in favor of eugenics, although I suppose that’s ad hominem. Needless to say, this is a very dangerous precedent, and was thankfully partially overturned.

    The thing is, the “crowded theater” analogy doesn’t even apply in this instance, since Twitter is a private corporation. So I see some reason for worry when people talk about the “crowded theater” in needlessly returning to the Schenk doctrine which is both irrelevant and dangerous.

    It is weird. In Europe, the more lefty party always gets red, and the more conservative blue… well, save Merkel.

    I believe the person sitting on the table is supposed to be Rall. I’m pretty sure I remember him depicting himself like that

    But then, no matter how well drawn, it’ll look ugly! Best to leave it as is
