Chris Beasley (passim) accuses me of having “socialist leanings“. Oooh harsh. Oh wait! I do have socialist leanings! I confessed it on my ‘About’ page three years ago.
The reason for this accusation is that I believe that people with disabilities should be able to participate on-line. And if a company won’t make accommodation and code its website accordingly, then it’s OK for that company to be sued.
Mr Beasley disagrees, as the handicapped are not normal, and it costs ten times as much
“to send one disabled kid to a normal highschool than we spend on the smartest kid in that highschool.”
Mr Beasley notes that I have MS and am therefore the type who
“sees enemies where there are none”. (Everyone with MS is paranoid. We’re not normal, you see.)
Patrick Lauke has already tried to comment on Mr Beasley’s blog, but the comment was deleted and Patrick’s IP was banned, which rather leads me to wonder exactly who is
“so used to fighting and defending that he sees enemies where there are none”.
Censoring people is also odd for someone who declares himself a
“libertarian”. But then that’s the battle-cry of the terminally right-wing: “Free speech and equal rights, for all those who look like me and think like me!”
