A few months ago we began talking about free speech. Each month the topic led us to something else and so we are winding our way around topics that are often ignored or taken for granted.

Last month’s talk on manipulation led us to the topic control for this month. Like manipulation, control can be positive and negative. Free speech requires us to use control. After all, the gift of free speech means we respect others in how we express ourselves and don’t use it as a tool to manipulate,  intimidate or bully others.

How do you see it?
