Lawrence, this is an incoherent position and as an interepretation of
postmodernism it IS wrong.

You might think that trampling on other people's rights is wrong.

"Free" self-expression for all is possible only in a world where the
possibilities of expression have
been narrowed down to a set of innocuous masturbatory acts that no one
else has any interest
in. Is that what interests you?
