You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go.

- "Fiction is the lie that tells the truth."

*Before discussion/on my own time:

Questions to think about:

-Why can't opinions be respected and simply be left alone?

-"The Universal Declaration Of Human Rights" article 19 states that "Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression, the right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers." What is it that the united nations mean by this? How is it similar or different to what the article states?
