A Message: Time To Show Resilience

“Censorship is not consistent with a liberal democracy. Censorship does not help citizens make informed choices. Censorship makes some of us suspicious of our institutions, which may or may not be warranted. Censorship can make us suspicious of each other”, Shawn Buckley writes in a concise and convincing discussion paper written April 12, 2021. In the paper, he distills his observations from the unprecedented year that 2020 was – with themes ranging from censorship and government to fear and resilience. If you are following NHPPA, it is safe to assume that freedom of choice is an important value you hold. We believe that extends to freedom of thought. Although we are currently being bombarded with a seemingly unending stream of alarmist media stories and government policies, Mr. Buckley urges us to focus on our own resilience and “refrain from being part of a mob.”
