The Theft of Our Freedom

“A big thing with the liberals these days is “freedom from oppression.” By “oppression” the liberals mean anything which makes them feel bad or keeps them from having what they want. To the liberals poverty is a form of oppression. So is feeling bad because they are ugly or stupid or awkward or ill-bred or unpopular. The liberals consider a person is “oppressed” when he is reminded of his inferiority by something another person writes or says. Feminists, in particular, are fond of complaining about this sort of “oppression.” They believe that they are free from oppression only when they are feeling good about themselves, and this “freedom to feel good,” as they see it, is threatened by people who say “insensitive” things. The liberals believe that they are fighting for freedom from oppression when they campaign for laws designed to protect the feelings of people who could be offended by the comments or actions of other people. These laws are often called “hate laws.” The liberals sometimes speak of “freedom from hate” and believe that they are achieving that with their “hate laws.'”
