Modern Day Thought Control
Today, European Liberals are sometimes tempted with the introduction of laws punishing the expression of opinions, especially involving criticism of Homosexuality. American liberals likewise have to covertly control thought because the 1st amendment of the constitution prohibits restrictions on free speech. To do this they exercise political correctness, often indoctrinating students in public schools to feel bad about voicing any negative feelings against homosexuals, conservative values, etc. Since prosecution is illegal, the students are taught instead to shun the dissenter as punishment for his "thought crime".
- French politician Christian Vanneste was fined by a court in Lille for saying that homosexuality was inferior to heterosexuality and that such practice would be perilous for humanity if it was pushed to the limit.
