While you have a point that the extreme may never come to pass with freedom of speech being taken away, it still must be handled with care. If you take a look at some other "hot button" issues taking place around the world, for example Gun Control, there a lot of places implementing the same fixes for an issue and coming up with different results.Simply stating that "it's not as important as you make it out to be" does not mean that it is not important.

As for the US not needing censorship laws because "we are already being censored through media...etc", that is only partially true. While it is easily known that all media channels are owned by someone, and therefore biased, there are other avenues from which information can be transmitted. One such Avenue is the internet, where while larger outlets (twitter, facebook, tumblr, etc..) that can and will remove posts they don't like, there are other sites that are waving the banner for what people can''t say on those sites. Forums that allow such discussion, blogs that point toward the issues, small news sites who want to report on the actual news. And if there aren't any, someone will make one faster than people can take it down.

If that doesn't work, there is still no consequence in the legal system to giving an opinion vocally or through the printed word. Only that of your fellow man. Even in that though, you can find people who will share your idea and help you fight for it.

Someone's ability to censor should not mean that we as a whole are fully and completely censored.

If I may ask, what country are you from?

To punish someones for simply saying something opens up the avenue for whoever doles out the punishment to set the standard for what can't be said.

To take it a step further, when you set a "do not cross" line, you can also move it farther up.

This is why the KKK/Black Panthers, Nazi, and other ill-mannered parties are allowed to have a voice. Once they take action that is illegal, then they are stopped, but to take away the ability to speak about one thing is to open the road to take away the ability to speak about all things.

well, where i am from openly stating the holocaust didnt happen, hate speech, nazi propaganda and such, insults, and quite some other things are forbidden too.


that whole argument is bullshit. because "well but it MIGHT get abused in some way if we discern at all" could be used to absolutely everything.
"what jail? nonono.... the ones setting laws might put is in jail for who knows what. lets keep everyone free because elseway it might get abused to get someone in jail by setting the standards of punishment differently".

i understand its a holy thing to americans, but it simply isnt such an important value. it simply isnt, and in america you dont really have free speech anyway... it got censored and tightened often in the history when it was needed. its just an abstract concept that is spoon-fed into the brains until every citizen believes it without ever seriously rethinking it or looking at the system to check if there is free speech anyway, or what pros and cons absolute free speech has.

there are many things i see that are negative for society that people defend by saying "freedom of speech!" or "free media!" while the truth is its only used for propaganda and to weaken society...
