Let’s face it - the only reason we are allowed (not to mention willing) to talk about it these days is because it begins with the letter ‘z’ and not the letter ‘j’. That is the single barrier demarcating the two items - a simple issue of letters and pronunciation, despite the fact that they are basically the same animal. Stay within that safe ‘z’ zone and all will be relatively fine. You will be championed as a friend of humanity and a warrior for the truth. Venture into that other area though and bring up that dreaded ‘j’ word and suddenly the same ‘openminded’ people who a moment before were erecting a monument in your honor start to loosen their collars and clear their throats uncomfortably. ‘Apples and oranges’ they say, or, as one apologist-minded writer on the internet once put it, ‘apples and rocks’ …Two entirely different creatures…One the lion and the other the lamb…black and white…good and evil…love and hatred… Oh, if only it were as simple as that. If only we could take things at face value and not have to go any deeper. If only the bad guys could ‘play fair’ as it were and dress in black all the time while the good guys dressed in white…What a wonderful world, as the old song goes. Unfortunately though it is not as simple as that. Unfortunately the bad guys are a lot smarter than they are given credit for being and know that victory is much easier achieved by deceiving their opponents than by fighting them on a level playing field. They have no place in their vocabulary for words like ‘fair’, ‘honesty’ or ‘justice‘. As far as they are concerned, there is only one rule that applies when playing the game and that is to win at any cost. And so with these things in mind, let’s not spend too much time celebrating this non-existent victory for free speech and intellectual liberty. Nor should we be strutting around like some kid who thinks he just scared off the schoolyard bully when in truth Bruiser just had better things to do that day besides beating him up. As seemingly bold and brash as we may envision ourselves being these days for daring to speak unfavorably about the same ‘z’ word that has been kept sacrosanct for some 50 years, the truth is that doing such nowadays does not carry the same kind of penalties that it used to. What used to be a capital offense has now been downgraded to a class b misdemeanor. Now it is like taunting a lion that is safely behind metal bars - it may snarl a bit, swipe its paws here and there, but in truth there is no real danger associated with it. Nor should we get too enthusiastic about how it at least appears as if the rules of debate are relaxing. The other side is not as frightened as they may appear to be. We don’t have them ‘running scared’ as much as we might like to think, and we can dismiss the idea that they are ‘coming around‘ to our way of thinking. They are just as haughty, just as heartless, just as arrogant and unconcerned with others’ well-being as were their murderous forefathers once called ‘children of the Devil’ by one well-known man from Nazareth. ...
