Restrictions on freedom of speech: Should governments protect minors from speech they deem to be potentially harmful or corrupting to these particular groups?

  • Limiting Free Speech

    Yes there should be a limit onto free speech because someone can get hurt because of it. Many people today have ended their lives because their entire life was surrounded around the hate speech others had said to them. SO they ended their lives thinking they would be free from the hate. Free speech should only be limited to a point where the people can't say hate speech, which I sincerely doubt that will happen but there should realy be. Yes, people should say what they want but at the cost of hurting someone? Would you want the that happening to you?

  • Limiting Free Speech

    They are saying to restrict free speech, not get rid of it all together. There should be limitations because when there isn't people can get hurt from it. For example, many people do suicide because of the hate speech that surrounds them. Would you want people to keep killing themselves because they believe what people are saying about them true? You would say to be strong and get over it, but sometimes there are people who aren't that strong and cannot take the hate anymore so they end their lives to end it. Free speech also disrupts peace too, and it can cause major things too happen. If free speech was limited, Hitler would have never been able to make the Nazi's and WWII would have never happened, maybe it could have happened for something else but not on speech. There should a certain limitation to what people can say to another person so that they cannot hurt them. Yes, you should be able to speak your mind, but at the cost of hurting someone? Would YOU really want that?

  • It is dumb

    People should be allowed to say whatever they want, if someone gets hurt, it is their fault and their issue. If they get hurt because of it, then they have to deal with the pain they caused. Life is hard and it doesn't need to be full of restrictions to keep people from saying or doing what they want. Children need to learn what life is and feel or witness the pain and learn from that, rather than their life being handed to them.

  • Free Speech is Indelible

    Free societies must be able to embrace free speech, even when free speech can be damaging to a specific group. People should be free to have opinions and to express those opinions. Parents, not governments, should protect their children from hate speech whenever possible. The right to free speech includes the right to be stupid and hurtful, even if the situation is uncomfortable.

  • Free speech for all

    You can not pick who and when free speech is a good idea or should be allowed. If you are going to limit one kind of people from certain things then you need to limit them all. I am all for free speech and believe that everyone should be allowed to have it and utilize it.
