April Fools! Learn Liberty is back in charge, and everything the Department of Careful Communications (DCC) said about censoring and redacting our content is moot.
Learn Liberty believes that the most effective way to challenge assumptions and refine ideas in a free society is to engage in respectful but frank dialogue—conversations in which we are open to the perspectives of others, no matter how much we might disagree. You can learn more about how free speech can shape a society here.
The Department of Careful Communications (DCC) would like to apologize for a blog post recently put out by Learn Liberty. The DCC is operating under reasonable suspicion that the post downplayed some of the very real ways that women suffer in today’s society. This is fundamentally opposed to the DCC’s mission of creating a safe space for all individuals.
The post wrongly argued that the government should not try to enforce equal outcomes for women, as that could perhaps force some individuals to make choices they were opposed to. It is in fact very clear that there are many circumstances, including this one, in which the government is better equipped and thus justified to make personal life decisions than individual citizens.
Learn Liberty’s greatly misguided post failed to take into account the struggles of every single person in the United States of America. Additionally, the post asserted that individual women may have different priorities than individual men, an assertion classified as obvious gender stereotyping under the DCC’s microaggression classification system.
Further, the post was created to promote an online program called “Feminism: A New Perspective.” There are concerns that this program may be attempting to reconcile feminism with a strain of thought called “libertarianism” or “classical liberalism.”
The DCC’s Learn Liberty Trauma Hotline has received multiple complaints from feminists who are concerned that libertarians are using this sensitive issue to promote their own radical ideology. Moreover, some libertarians have filed complaints, expressing concern that discussing a controversial issue might somehow dilute their ideology.
The DCC is currently conducting a thorough investigation of the program to identify and eliminate any suspected microaggressions. At this time, program participants may continue to review program materials at their own risk, though they should be advised that the content contains uncensored and potentially upsetting viewpoints. Be assured that the Department of Careful Communications is working hard to mollify any potential risks and complications coming from this content.
Given the sensitive nature of this topic, the DCC has determined that individuals must not be allowed to speak on feminism without specific qualifications. Therefore, the DCC is in the process of implementing a regulation that would require all individuals who wish to comment on the issue to obtain a license to do so.
All applicants must pay a fee of $1,000 and undergo 30 hours of training to understand the history, complexities, and perspectives surrounding the topic before taking an intensive test to ensure that they have mastered the DCC’s talking points on the topic.
Upon successful completion of the certification, individuals will be entered in the DCC’s database, and all online publications will be closely monitored. Online publications or commentary from non-certified individuals will be instantly removed.
The DCC appreciates the patience and cooperation of all citizens in this matter as it works to control all subversive and hurtful microaggressions that have arisen surrounding this topic.
