That states, "A warning about the difficulty of suppressing the truth."
I want to point out the last sentence of the stimulus, "Nothing is ever gained by forcing citizens to disseminate their thoughts in secret."
I had a sense that "suppressing the truth" makes the fact test check according to "disseminate their thoughts in secret," and "a warning about the difficulty" to "nothing is ever gained by forcing citizens to".
I feel this implies a warning about the difficulty of suppressing the truth.
Why doesn't this meet the facts of the stimulus? Is it because, this statement is a premise and not the conclusion, and its just one piece of the persuasion used, but not the primary form?
