    Can the expression of controversial political ideas threaten another's safety?

    Why or why not? 

    This is a serious question.

    No

    The definition of the word 'safety'.

    This is a serious question.

    No.

    Why or why not? 
    Because the expression of controversial political ideas is a 1st amendment right.

    This is a serious question. 
    I believe you are serious, but the question isn't.

    What is your idea of safety? Safety from cognitive dissonance?

    It's sad that people today equate different thought perspectives as actual violence.

    People and societies can not grow in an environment of groupthink.

    George Orwell predicted this future.

    I long wish for the days when "sticks and stones could break my bones but words can never hurt me" will be chanted in elementary school classes again.
