Outlawing Bad Thoughts…

I don’t often agree with commentary from Slate, but this makes sense:

the process does raise some troubling issues. A private citizen whose private thoughts were audio-taped perhaps illegally has been told he can no longer own his private property because of the thoughts that were revealed on that tape. These thoughts were loathsome to be sure, but didn’t advocate anything illegal and didn’t call for any violent or even literally hurtful actions.
