Dreaming and Democracy: maintaining the conversation in the face of those who seek to create enemies in order to render them speechless

Dr Anthony Korner

The 2015 attack on Charlie Hebdo in Paris was widely interpreted as an attack on free speech, one of the latest in a series of such attacks that appear to be intended to intimidate journalists in relation to criticisms, or humour, in relation to specific religions. “Je suis Charlie” became a rallying call for worldwide protest. Over the ages, political and scientific discussion has often taken the form of argument. This can be healthy provided individuals are allowed to have a voice. However, humans are passionate creatures and argument is often associated with conflict, where individual voices may be derailed. In considering the conflict between the materialist and the idealist philosopher in the 19th Century, Hegel came to the conclusion that these two positions were both “moments” in a larger conversation. When one position is silenced, this becomes a lop-sided affair with a cost to the potential for development of self.
