Stirling Times - - Opinion -

SO­CIAL in­ter­est groups push­ing their re­spec­tive so­cial agenda are in­creas­ingly us­ing bul­ly­ing, threats, in­tim­i­da­tion and also shout­ing down the views of other peo­ple.

They can­not and will not tol­er­ate a di­ver­sity of so­cial opin­ions.

All of us should be able to have free­dom of speech on so­cial is­sues with­out any fear of reper­cus­sion.

With­out this safe­guard, the mi­nor­ity – namely so­cial ac­tivists, po­lit­i­cal ex­trem­ists, yes even politi­cians – will dic­tate to us the ma­jor­ity: what to think, how to vote, how to live,what to wear, what to read etc. etc!

This is un­demo­cratic and elit­ist!

For the mi­nor­ity to have the ultimate say over the ma­jor­ity means that we have ar­rived to a new dark age. John Seo­tis, Stir­ling
