the government has a responsibility to censor political speeches due to saftey and terrorism concern
Debate Rounds (2)
I believe that it is the governments job to protect is people they are working for them. Too many politicians use shock/show politics to gain publicity. This can damage the country they are campaigning in significantly! If they offend any type of extremist group that works in there country or beyond its borders terrorism could be a huge threat to the country and that politicians safety. An example of this was in South Africa. Nelson Mandela made a speech that angers white political extremist group the AWB in return they bombed shopping malls and ran around black shanty towns open firing weapons just because Mandela laughed at there attempts to keep him quiet. If Mandela had only not spoke about this hundreds of lives would have been saved.
Im taking a debate class, and this is the topic, im supposed to come up with 3 arguments for and 3 arguments against each side. other than free speech, and protecting people overseas from harm, i cant think of anything else for or against.
If you feel like helping me out, i would really appreciate it. If not, i again apologize for wasting you time.
Victoria_Wintour forfeited this round.
