A day after I write this, an 88-year-old white supremacist walks into the Holocaust museum and shoots a security guard. Racism comes from all sides.
I believe strongly in unlimited free speech. Yet one glance at the shooter’s Web site gives me at least some insight into why countries like Germany and Austria have banned certain types of hate speech. Of course, speech is just such, and what kind of indication could there be that at the old age of 88, this man would turn his fantasies to reality?
I don’t even know what to say, because I still have no idea how people can come to hate so much.
