THBT hate speech should be a crime: Should hate speech be censored for the good of society?

  • No responses have been submitted.
  • No, speech should always be free.

    No, THBT hate speech should not be censored for the good of society, because speech should always be free. Unless a person threatens to hurt another, a person should be free to say whatever they want to. This is true even if what the person has to say is mean or offensive. A person has the right to speak their mind.

  • No, free speech is paramount.

    No, hate speech should not be censored for the good of society, because it would lead to other types of speech censorship. Being able to speak freely is critical to the good of society. Censoring speech would cause individuals to fear their government. Enforcement would largely be political. As much as speech can damage, not allowing it causes other, more severe problems.
