Democracy is a messy system. The benefits of it in the best of all worlds is a meeting of the minds, and thorough vetting of ideas proposed, from multiple perspectives. In the worst of all worlds, democracy is a rumor mongering system, in the internet age and easy one. I personally think that BDS is vague, opportunistic, deceptive, mean-spirited, harboring fascist thinking and possibly resulting in fascist and racist shunning. And, I think that some that advocate for BDS seek the reduction of human suffering, and believe that BDS will accomplish that. Who gets to speak? In a democracy, anyone.
