Time For Zero Tolerance Of Zero Tolerance (Or - Why We Should Be More Accepting Of Other People's Behaviour)
There is a new buzzword going around - "Zero-Tolerance".  Apparently this is a catch-all phrase which means - play by our rules or else

Of course there are some things which we should not tolerate - murder, gun crime, theft, etc.  For the rest there really needs to be some room for conversation.

Some of the things which appear to have been caught up in this "Zero-Tolerance" culture are things which - in an ideal world - not only should we tolerate but we should actively encourage.

Thngs like Freedom of Speech, The right for a Disabled Person to judge whether or not they are fit for work based on their on personal experience, the right for a woman to have a family and a career if they so choose, etc.

"Zero-tolerance" sounds to me like what A Hitler Esq successfully attempted during the Second World War - as in = creating a race of people who conform to the same beliefs as the leader of the country (or group) they find themselves in.

Everybody is equal with equals rights to be accepted for who and what they are.

As someone said - "I may not agree with a word you say but I will defend your right to say it until I die".
