Free speech vs hate speech (hate speech causes violence?) *i just joined*



what are your thoughts on freedom of speech? I think free speech should have little to know restriction (the restriction being threat of violence or incitement of violence and not shouting fire in crowded room)


Sounds reasonable enough, but I’d also say that it should extend to whistleblowers. Likewise, I believe that a breaking an NDA or gag order shouldn’t be met with repercussion if the information revealed related to illegal (such as assault) or unconstitutional (in the case of Edward Snowden, who leaked information that the govt. broke the 4th amendment) activity or events


that’s understandable


My views on free speech is that I’m glad I live in a nation that allows free speech. I can’t imagine living in a country that wouldn’t let me speak my mind.
