Censorship

On Facebook a while back someone wrote that the news should censor people who deny that climate change is caused by human actions or that they don't think that climate change is a critical issue facing the world today.

The science is settled.  There is no reason to continue to discuss the issue, and it's all about the science.  If the science is settled, then why do we need to continue to fund research into climate change?  If global warming is happening and there is no longer a need to discuss it, why should be keep paying for discussions and publications about it?

Liberals used to be for free speech.  Now that liberals seem to control much of the media, it seems they care for free speech only when it suits their agenda.  Don't allow people who support Israel to write articles.  Don't let racists write articles.  Don't let people who deny global warming write articles.  Don't let people post photos of the Confederate flag.  Don't post anything that is sexist.  Don't write anything that offends Islam.  I believe that free markets will eventually determine what is true, right, and beautiful.  Even the free market of ideas; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
