Jyllands photos

These are the controversial Jyllands photos that have been causing massive unrest in the Arab world. It is seen as a massive struggle between Freedom of Speech and Blasphemy, and has prompted boycotts, talk of assassinations, and similar, and highlight the struggle that Pim Fortuyn and others have been at the centre of. As a rare exception to my habit of asking rather than telling in this journal, I am firmly on the side of permitting such speech. Respect for other cultures should not be at the expense of one's own -- Liberalism should not support multiculturalism to the extent of giving up on its core values. I am pleased that Denmark is standing up for liberty, even in the face of the boycotts. Arbeit macht Geld, nur Freiheit macht Mann frei! More on dachte_feed, which y'all should subscribe to anyhow.
