• Yes, out with the over the top few.

    Extremists only make a lot of noise about things they have no control over. Certain laws and constitutions will not be changed over a few people kicking up dust about how they feel. The country has real issues that need to be settled like our finances and health care and the attention doesn't need to be taken away from that because someone with wild views.

  • Yes, they should

    Yes, I definitely have to agree that extremist views should be outlawed. Extremist views have hardly any legitimate point to bring to the table and usually only stir intense debate that distracts us from whatever goal we are trying to make. Extremists shouldn't be considered because of their outlandish points of view.

  • Yes, extremist views should be outlawed.

    Yes, I think that extremist views should be outlawed since they can lead to corruption and violence within a society. I think that having a view should be protected by the government, but there are those in today's society who take some views too far and become violent when they take on an extremist point-of-view.

  • Two Words: First Amendment

    Even if someones views are "extremist" they are allowed to express those views as long as it is not violent. Once someone uses violence to express their views they lose their protection of the first amendment. Everyone wants to say what other people are allowed to do, as if they are the judges of what's "correct" or "wrong".

  • No, they should not be outlawed.

    Extremist views should not be outlawed. They have the right to think, believe, and express themselves in what ever way that makes them happy. The only time the extremists need to be put down is when they do something to cause harm to others, or verbally assault others. As long as they do not break laws, they are not doing anything wrong.

  • No, it should not.

    Extremist views should not be outlawed. Everyone has a right to their own opinion, and their own views on life. People should be able to freely think however they wish. The only thing they can not and should not be able to do due is actually cause harms, or harassment, to other people.

  • Outlawing views is a violation of the First Amendment.

    Outlawing any views is a violation of the First Amendment right to free speech which is guaranteed in the Constitution of the United States. Holding certain views or ideas is not a crime. Once any society begins to outlaw other viewpoints, no matter how extreme or disagreeable, free speech is abolished. Free speech is the foundation of a free and open society. It is also impossible to outlaw an idea. A government might succeed in keeping people from speaking openly, but that won't stop anyone from harboring extremist views. It is Orwellian to interfere with another persons freedom of thought. We limit freedom of speech at our peril. Once it begins, who knows where it will end. Therefore, extremists views must be allowed in order to preserve free speech and a free society.
