Thought 215: Controlling Others

Psychologist B.F. Sinner apparently stated (I'm taking as my source for this a John Cleese anti 'political correctness' video) that those who lack control over their emotions and are prone to being hurt will attempt to control and censor the utterings of others. 

Whether this is true or not is highly debatable but I will say this: the only legitimate, i.e. moral, form of control is self-control and attempting to control the thoughts, emotions and actions of others is a sure sign of un-enlightenment.
