We need South Park

Whilst this article, from The Times, is written in the context of the UK, it does apply to the whole of Europe. It should be noted that crimes committed by past regeims are not taught in formal communist countries for fear of a backlash against far left extremists (communists).
This kind of observations should not be restricted to politico-religious extremists but to everyone who wants to suppress history and freedom of speech. Most importantly freedom should mean that everything is challenged, even historical events. Denial is one rhetoric, being able to justify these opinions in an open debate with alternative views is another.

 “Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety,” wrote Benjamin Franklin. Surely, if the divide grows bigger we need these lessons in moral bravery more than ever. We need education. We need intelligence. We need tolerance.
