I agree with him.
"The problem with today's world is that everyone believes they have the right to express their opinion AND have others listen to it."
The problem? Really?
The problem is you cannot always express that opinion. It may be subject to censorship, redaction or retribution.
That's a tad pedantic and unlike you, Cute - making such a comment doesn't necessarily imply that he means it is THE (i.e. only) problem.
I agree... thing is some people think their 'opinion' deserves special protections...
Ah, but some people believe their opinion is the one true opinion and everyone else is a drongo for failing to recognise that fact.
But it does imply that and it seems, to me, to be a fairly sloppy use of language to use on a poster bigging up the use of reason.
(Not to mention the fact that he starts by stating something that everyone believes and then demonstrates that he doesn't.)
that's your opinion... but it doesn't imply that to me. *shrug*
i agree with him
edit - this was for @cuteinpuce
I wish he'd get his bloody hair cut!
Along with this (sorry for the rude word but it's a quote and I don't know how to photoshop it out...

“It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more... than a whine.
I suspect that Stephen Fry never working under a bullying manager.
The notion that everyone is entitled to an opinion is the 21st century's most fatuous illusion.
Only people who know what they are talking about are entitled to an opinion, which is why I have no opinions on Professor Cox's field of expertise, and quite possibly why he has no opinions on Sweelinck's use of the extended dominant in the cadential passages of his chorale-variations.
We were best to remember Wittgenstein's seventh proposition: Wovon man nicht sprechen kann, darüber muss man schweigen - whereof one cannot speak, thereof one must remain silent.
Is Brian Cox doing anything about the safe space nonsense in universities?
It would be good to see him put his money where his mouth is.
What experience do you have of that, cutiepie? It's worth bearing in mind that bullying managers' henchmen work under bullying managers, but don't necessarily see it as a disadvantage.
So remember emotional abusers, don't think of modifying the expression of your views just because someone's feelings might get hurt.
