Free Speech~

I am all about free speech. I can handle disagreements & the heated exchange of clashing ideologies. However, I draw the line at wicked, hateful, unmerited accusations & harassment for sport~
That kind of behavior is unacceptable to me.

Free speech is not a license to assassinate someones character, simply because you do not agree with how they see things.

However, Free speech includes legal propaganda, organized programming & straight up lies, as well. It is an ALL or NOTHING kind of a thing. We are either for it, or against it.

Although…No one in their right mind, would yell “fire” in a crowded conference room, and not expect there to be an aftermath.

Remember, Free Speech is not actually free.

Yelling “Fire” in a crowded restaurant, summons emergency services & possibly jail time. Our words have power. They don’t call it ‘spelling’ erroneously. Our words have consequences. On a very practical level, free speech comes at a huge cost for those who do not craft their words carefully.
