Free speech

Filed under: Evil people — hayesjupe @ 7:05 pm

The west – particularly the yanks, are always banging on about free speech.

Why is it that free speech only applies when “freely” discussing certain things?

Why when extremists (and they are extremists) decide that something offends them, cannot it not be discussed? Isn’t that  most sane people’s issue with religion ? That discussion on the topic is closed down because its not allowed…. because its just not…. because we may offend someone who believes in a fiary tale and thinks they deserve tax free status because of it ?

Society can never evolve while topics remain off the table for discussion….
