The first message I get from this audio is a very simple, “How dare you challenge your students?” Next comes, “How dare you ask to face your accusers?”
Then you have this claim that by asking to know who her accusers are she is threatening them. She wants to know who they are and that means others are going to know their identity, and that means that somebody may go out and do physical harm to them. I have to ask,so what?
Where are their friends, where is their family? Where are the people ready and willing to take their side? Who among their “ardent defenders” is going to stand in front of their door and whoop ass on the fools who wish them harm? These are friends?
But the biggest message I got from this is the infantile belief that the common man has to be shielded from reality. Got news for you, it’s dangerous out there. Your job is not to protect people from it, but to prepare them for it. So 10 year olds aren’t ready. Last I heard 20 year olds are a lot more ready, and insulating them from the outside world is fucking abusive. It’s time our “protectors” started treating the adults like adults.
We’ve never had absolute safety and we never will, so give up this idea you have to make everything absolutely safe. And I say it’s time we gave the control freaks a good boot in the fundament and drove them screaming back to their deeply hidden caves.
Life is dangerous. Life has always been dangerous. If you’re not ready for that then you can lock yourself away in something deep and dark, and get yourself sterilized so your birth defect can’t spread to new generations.
You will not do anything that harms society, or by inaction allows society to come to harm.
You will not do anything that harms a human being, or by inaction allows a human being to come to harm.
The first takes priority over the second. And by inaction I’m including the refusal to get people ready for the world. By doing that you are by inaction allowing the to come to harm. And by that you are making it possible for society as a whole to come to harm. That is a violation of the first law.
Learning to walk involves a lot of falling down and getting scratches and scrapes. It hurts. But in the end you wind up walking and running and better able to handle things. So let your young people fall down. Let them get scratches and scraps. Then let them get off their butts and carry on, it aint gonna kill them. Stand up for yourself and don’t let the fools control your life.
