New york times makes "scientific case" for outlawing free speech

Words can have a powerful effect on your nervous system. Certain types of adversity, even those involving no physical contact, can make you sick, alter your brain — even kill neurons — and shorten your life.

Your body’s immune system includes little proteins called proinflammatory cytokines that cause inflammation when you’re physically injured. Under certain conditions, however, these cytokines themselves can cause physical illness. What are those conditions? One of them is chronic stress.

Your body also contains little packets of genetic material that sit on the ends of your chromosomes. They’re called telomeres. Each time your cells divide, their telomeres get a little shorter, and when they become too short, you die. This is normal aging. But guess what else shrinks your telomeres? Chronic stress.

If words can cause stress, and if prolonged stress can cause physical harm, then it seems that speech — at least certain types of speech — can be a form of violence.

LOL life must be nearly intolerable when you allow mere words to kill you.

Wild! I just authored a thread showing how certain hate crimes are ignored.

The entire topic of hate speech is bunk, ultimately just means to expressing hate towards those with whom one disagrees.

Oh no, there are those established institutions that are exempt. NYT for sure. Maybe the WSJ and some other papers. Just get rid of that pesky new media. And, of course that Murdoch.

From some of the responses from LTUP's lefties it's probably true.
