The beginnings of fascism?

August 7, 2009
Williamsport Sun-Gazette

After reading an opinion and responses on the topic of so-called hate speech, I can't help but to think one of three or maybe all of these possibilities exist. One is that the English language has become so diluted that disagreeing with someone's views and beliefs means the same thing as hatred. A second possibility is that society has become so thin-skinned that some people can't handle even the slightest criticism and therefore overreact. A third possibility could be that the some writers to this column, some of whom tend to be a bit extremist in their views, continually try to adjust everyone's mindset to the their way of thinking, which I consider to be somewhat fascist.
