Liberty, if you can keep it

As a follow up to the previous post showing how free speech is a white thing, note that free speech is an American thing. The US is still as good as it gets when it comes to speaking freely.

The subsequent graph shows the percentages of people, by whether they were born in the US or were born outside the country and subsequently settled stateside, who do not believe representatives of the following groups should be allowed to speak in public. For contemporary relevance, all responses are from 2000 onward. Sample sizes are 9,807 for natives and 1,313 for the foreign-born:


The color commentary from the preceding post is as relevant in the case of native-vs-foreign-born as it is in the case of white-vs-non-white, so with the objective of making each capable of standing on its own, indulge me this... reiteration.

Whether the speaker in question is 'far right'--as in the case of an avowed racist--or 'far left'--as in the case of a communist--native-born Americans are more open to discussion of controversial topics than immigrants are.

This is of course a feature rather than a bug from the perspective of the Cloud People. It's one of the reasons they've been working so hard to elect a new people. Independent thoughts should not be coming from the peasantry!

Not only does multiculturalism make members of all races and cultures hunker down more than they otherwise would if their societies were homogeneous, the specific kind of diversification we're suffering from is accelerating this process even more than heterogeneity in general would. As the white population declines, free speech will decline along with it.

The more diversity we take on, the less liberty and equality we will enjoy. These things are mutually exclusive.
