Apologies for the link. Wonder why the "_(Internet)" was not considered the part of hyperlink. "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Troll_(Internet)" is the link i wanted to share.
Now tell me does the freedom of speech allow Nazi content or racial comments. Should child pornography be allowed under freedom of speech or freedom of expression. Would freedom of speech allow me to question anybody's integrity without having proof of it. Should i be allowed to sling mud at any one. Is hate content covered under freedom of speech. Is bullying content covered under freedom of speech. Is questioning people's intelligence or their compassion just because they belong to a particular geographic region covered under freedom of speech. Freedom of speech is for critique of policies. Freedom of speech is for presentation of ideas. Freedom of speech is the ability to say no to a tyrant and standing by it.
Yes you can criticize a drug pusher or human trafficker but isn't it different from belittling a mechanic or a city services worker or a dentist or an engineer and stereotyping them very negatively. Yes you have the absolute right to point out what lobbyists are doing and how they are effecting policies worldwide. You have the right to criticize. You have the right to agree or disagree or keep your opinion to your self or say it loudly over roof tops. You have the right to be anonymous. And you have much more rights then that. Rights that i cannot imagine. We have much more rights then that.
What we are exchanging right here is freedom of speech. We have a choice to agree or disagree. We can not like each other's view point. but we do not have to hate each other.
