"Bad acts are done by bad people, not bad words. You either believe in unrestricted free speech or you don't believe in free speech"

Fuck free speech then I guess 🙃

@sophia Sometimes I feel like the abstract concept of Free Speech has turned into a monster.

@stolas freedom of speech is just as essential democratic freedom and until recently, a mostly uncontroversial one. It's been demonized so I guess that counts as being turned into a monster.
@sophia

@strypey @stolas Until recently it wasn't being used to give a pass to hate speech and fascism. It also wasn't being used to mean freedom from criticism or a right to be heard or given a platform.
It's become controversial because its use has become controversial and stretched beyond recognition.

We don't have it in my country, we have freedom of expression. It is not absolute,and to argue as such is absurd, but still we hear the same arguments.

@sophia @stolas I'm sorry, these comments have been declared Extremist(TM) and Anti-Democratic(TM) by the #AcceptableSpeechCommittee. Please remove them from public view, or the host of your website will be asked to do so, and you will face criminal charges under the Harmful Digital Communications Act. If the website host refuses, they will also face charges, and their cloud host vendor or ISP will be asked to take down the website. If they refuse, they will lose their HDCA webcasting license.
