Freedom of Speech

Print Post  

Five-time Socialist Party candidate for President of the US Eugene Debs was imprisoned for speaking out against US entry into WW I in violation of the Sedition Act:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eugene_V._Debs

Some in the Antifa  (Anti-fascist) movement  would deny permits and use other means of preventing racists and fascists from speaking.

However, this a common practice of FASCISTS and FASCIST GOVERNMENTS which usually seek to prevent free speech by passing laws limiting the subjects of speeches, preventing freedom of assembly,  closing down newspapers, and jailing journalists and whistleblowers.

Voltaire was right.

Free speech is not just some lofty but ridiculous notion, it is an  ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL COMPONENT OF FREEDOM AND JUSTICE.

Right!

Hate speech excluded! That can't be argued but it can be qualified and argued over just who has the right to qualify it. It's not as simple as you try to make it at first blush.

I'll stand by my opinion and that of Voltaire and Spiked News that it really is just that simple:

Authoritarians, Globalists, and Cultural Fascists will do whatever they can to censor free speech. It's the nature of the beast. It's in their DNA.   As libertarians, we must push back at every opportunity.  Once they take our free speech, the rest of our natural rights will quickly follow. I guarantee it.

Taking part on this forum has done wonders for your problem! You're spelling is far better and you're forming complete sentences now.

Are you sure you weren't faking it for us? I am!

Antifa's favorite tool to limit speech is fascism
