One of our Founding Fathers said that when people fear their government,  it is called tyranny.   But when the government fears the people,  it is called democracy.    Fear might mean merely respect and listening to and accommodating yourself.     So I don’t plant to cover this topic on Tuesdays anymore,  but I did find an interesting further discussion that was aired on Canadian TV recently, this weekend, I think..

Here is part of an article reporting on that TV show –


I read the comments following that article,  mostly Canadian commenters, it seemed.   I took a few notes on the comments –


There seems to be a lot of freedom to discuss things openly there.

Can Americans really be so bullied and ridiculed and mocked and cowed into polite silence?

Or is there something else at work here?
