The juxtaposition of the launch of the Laconia Daily Sun's Digital Public Square and NH House hearings on HB544 during the same week is remarkable. The Digital Public Square provides a forum for civil, civic dialogue. That latter is an act "relative to the propagation of divisive topics" that limits public schools and others from discussing topics related to racism and sexism. The former seeks to build understanding among those with different points of view and perhaps even find common ground. The latter tries to enforce particular perspectives. So much for "Live Free or Die". Which is the better path for us to take?
