It is good Autumn is back. But human nature has never changed over thousands of years and it's not about to change here until there is LAW and ORDER set up. Some parties will back off and recede, but they will come right back on and start again in a while, and the same chaos we just saw will repeat itself. So we will address who is causing this, why they are causing it, and what can be done.
There were not many causes of the problem, though the biggest causes of the problem were the ones shouting the loudest against any rules on the site. As they hate law and order in their own lives, so they hate law and order around them. Our nation was founded upon absolute law and order that was given us by nature, and nature's Creator. Those who violate God's law in their own life are apt to violate it outside their lives. So, while it was good to see Expat take back his post, and I certainly harbor no ill will towards him, yet it's a disgrace that a man at his age is still talking crudely about lascivious topics, and openly admitting, with pride no less, that he is an open libertine. He is not alone, but since others have not been such a huge problem on this site, I will leave them alone. As for Slade/Michael B. he is quite a character, and if it weren't for his profane/debauched nature has many heroic qualities. But these heroic qualities will never be fully developed until he lays aside the bestial qualities that detract from a man reaching his potential. The other culprits are those who despise self control, embrace hedonism, and have revisionist views of history to justify their depraved actions.
Why are they causing the chaos? Because, those with little self control have no option but to harm others. Hurt people hurt people. They use profanity, they use lecherous language and revel in discussing filth. Their prurient interests are what inevitably comes out of their mouths. Good sense and decency are things they have an allergy to. When people cannot allow nature's God to rule their lives, they sure aren't going to allow humans created by nature's God to rule their lives either. The Constitution was created for a moral and a religious people. It was not created for corrupt people, who can't rule themselves. Let us examine one of the most debauched religions in world history. Islam was founded by Muhammad, who is a lot like many men on this site. He had no control over his sex drive. As such, he was a bloody murderer, a pedophile, a liar, and a sexual deviant. To this day, Islamic men have this problem, and Islamic nations are typically hell holes where no sane person wants to visit. The men have barbaric practices, and the women are forced into slavish servitude. And that is the role the corrupt men on here wish women had as well. Many flat out admit they have to pay women for sex, and boast about it. That is so depraved, I don't know where to start. Only a people who can be ruled by reason and morality can function in harmony with each other and look to others interests instead of their own bestial desires. Those who cannot deny self, can never truly love others. Self denial is one of the first steps towards true love, and that includes agape and Eros. Two ways to pervert an individual is to pervert their sex drive outside of marriage, and to pervert their reason with lies and propaganda. Mind altering drugs are another form.
The proposed Constitution earlier is a perfect illustration of why John Adams said the Constitution could only rule a moral and a religious people. Because the least moral people among us kicked up the biggest fuss about having rules. They don't care that the rules are elementary for even grade school kids, they care only about being able to pursue whatever direction their deceitful and wicked hearts lead them.
So, if we are going to have an environment where free speech, which was not created to give justification for the profanity and other perversions many of you claim are protected by free speech, is allowed to have free reign, than we need to have rules to get rid of profanity, lewdness, and blatant lying. Free speech was given us by Founders who never used profanity or lewdness publicly, and when they did do it in private, they had the good sense to apologize and try to repent. They certainly never boasted of their evils. So to hear people claim it's tyranny to try to impose rules that were universally acknowledged by our Founders is completely absurd.
This is a website, but if the laws of history are not applied to any endeavor, than it is fated to repeat the mistakes of those in the past. It is up to us to either be wise and allow the lessons of the past to guide us to a prudent present and a grand future, or to ignore them and to settle for a mediocre existence where people who are slaves to themselves continually try to make others slaves to the same debauchery they themselves are held captive to, by their behavior and treatment of others. The greatest slavery is that to self. For writing, art, or any other great endeavor to truly flourish, and the creator to be happy as well, one must conquer self. No one can do that for anyone, but at least a healthy environment will be promoted with these rules, and the tyranny and anarchy of the lawless number who cannot govern themselves, will be defended against.
