The whole point of free speech is not to make ideas exempt from criticism but to expose them to it.

Everything is connected to everything else.

Today I shopped (evaluated the customer experience at) a convenience store. I need a receipt for a purchase in order to get paid. I neglected to get one for the grapefruit juice I bought. I asked for a receipt about 10 minutes after my purchase, letting the cashier know that all I needed was any cash receipt within the last few minutes. I was given the one in the picture.

Since I only buy grapefruit or orange juice at these evaluations, I am morally positioned to ask: Do you think there is a connection?

I know you don't. It wasn't aimed at you.
