In fact, contrarily, I suspect there's a healthy percentage of our nation who are simply too scared to say what they really think for fear of retribution. .
Very noticeable coming back to the UK. Both my wife and I have made the point to friends and relatives. Their reaction has been exactly as you say Frank. However in private they certainly voice their frustrations.
Are you trying to say that racism, sexism, homophobia being pushed out is a negative? Are those who hold those views really upset that their narrow minded bigotry is being oppressed by the wider less ignorant of society?
"That said, the progress we have made in those 30 years has been for very good reasons."
As you quoted my post, or rather the part that greeneagle was commenting upon, I suggest reading it properly rather than twisting and distorting what was said.
A rather apt demonstration of the point being made. Congratulations.
