Letters to the Editor

Letter: Lost independence indeed

To the Editor:

A recent letter writer blamed 'neoliberals' for everything from stifling free speech and suppressing independent thinking, to treason. And, of course, the media and the universities are the enablers; using political correctness to 'bend and twist reality.'

My advice to him would be to worry less about others suppressing his thinking, and do a bit of critical, fact-based thinking on his own. Believing in stale right-wing talking points doesn't sound very independent to me.
