Ubi non licet tacere quid cuiquam licet... "If silence is now allowed...what is anyone allowed" ...Such is what CREON...his chief counselor...said to OEDIPUS when Oedipus bade his speak. CREAON, "Allow me silence. Can any smaller freedom be requested from a king?" OEDIPUS REBUKES, "Often the freedom of silence is more dangerous than speech to king and kingdom. Then CREAON utters these immortal words.

Might the compelled-payment of UNION DUES be such a violation of free speech...forcing a worker bee to support a UNION whose political views anathema to that particular employee?(WSJ A-13;03-10-18).
