  • It is a fundamental human right

    Freedom of speech is a fundamental human right. It allows people to have the freedom of expressing opinions freely. It protects your right to voice out opinions regarding global issues or in society. “A free society depends on the free exchange of ideas,” said Peter Tatchell. If safe spaces were established it would restrict your freedom of speech, your freedom of communication, your freedom of sharing views and discussing them with others. You can even receive punishments by violating such rules. I find this not necessary as we cannot predict whether things can act as an offense to someone. Simply saying that you like the colour blue can be offensive to someone that hates this colour or likes red instead. Without the means of offending someone, this can easily get you into trouble.

  • Yes, it is.

    Freedom of speech has always supported us in many ways. It is absolutely crucial for change and many ways. If you didn't know, Chins has a huge Firewall that blocks certain sites, and it hasn't been handling well. I found this off of "Upfront" magazine. It just makes me wonder if they even allow Skype or Facebook. But for sure most social media sites would be blocked(yeah kids, imagine life without social media).

  • Freedom of speech

    Freedom of Speech is quite frequently taken for granted. One of the reasons Freedom of Speech is the best privilege Americans have is that they can not bring change in society without being able to state their opinion. Society is one of the only things that has a major effect on them that them themselves can affect for the greater good of the new children that will be leading in the future. Without freedom of speech society would stay the same damaging the Americans to come. Freedom of Speech gives America hope to make a better future for everyone in the smallest way ever yet it makes the biggest changes.

  • Yes it is.

    If freedom of speech did not exist I would not be allowed to write this. Freedom of speech is also important to define all other human rights and therefore this can be seen as one of the most fundamental human rights of all. Without the right society will most likely end up in a democracy such as North Korea.

  • Freedom of speech is crucial

    Free speech has always been important throughout history because it has been used to fight for change. When we talk about rights today they wouldn’t have been achieved without free speech. Think about a time from the past – women not being allowed the vote, or terrible working conditions in the mines – free speech is important as it helped change these things

  • Is freedom of speech important?

    Yes, freedom of speech is extremely important just as important as individualism is. The thing is though, everyone agrees with freedom of speech, where is the line drawn in the " freedom of speech" when it comes to hate and violence? It seems like today there are some hate messages that are trying to get through based on popularity or something? Its like one person says I hate this or that then sets out to see who agrees with them and then the majority rules? Who sets the standards for right and wrong and that's based off of the persons spiritual, political, etc beliefs. Can everyone agree with one thing? Or are we all a bunch of choice brats?

  • It is important

    First I would like to say that I have a limit on it. Don't say people should die or something or make any death threats. But you can't ban words. That's not how language works. If you don't like it, don't look at it or listen to it. Change the bloody channel, moron.

  • It is a human right.

    The freedom of speech is included in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as one of the most important rights in the declaration. As almost every country in this planet signed the declaration and it is one of the cornerstones of every one of that nations, then there is no doubt about saying that yes, it is important.

  • Of course, verily.

    What? This isn't the PRC or the DPRK. Hell, we shouldn't use them fighting words in front of your antagonists, let them suffer on their own while we hate them back by walking away. I am too against internet censorship. We need a government, but we do not want too much politics. If so, our country will be like Nazi Germany or Soviet Russia.

  • The Government Can't Read

    If the government is for the people then this shouldn't be a problem but the fact that we are here discussing this says that the government can't read the document that gives them their power to rule and run the country. The first amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America grants its citizens the right to freedom of speech, press, religion, and to assemble to express their grievances and have the government redress them. The freedom of speech is always important and no one can control what you think, yet, but as time progresses if people sit by like they have been then the freedom of speech will disappear and then people will wonder what happened to America and why they didn't stop the problems that were so evident and able to be corrected. What will future generations think of our actions today?
