Does free speech has limits or is it going to spit on everyone? what do you think and please justify your reply if possible, thanks.
Free speech should not spit on anyone.
Freedom of speech should be for some good.
The abuse of freedom of speech is not for any good.
I completely agree with you. though that would mean it needs to have limits at some point.
The limits are here:
"Do unto others as you would have others do unto you."
This is a universal principle and can be applied to freedom of speech.
Would I want some one to say that about me?
Would I want to be purposely mislead with false claims and blatant untruths??
Would I like to be called names and slandered?
Do I really want your negative opinion about my mother.. or worse...
The whole and only problem with free speech is : That free speech itself SHOULD be used in a responsible , considerate and positive way . That old adage " Speak 10 % of the time and listen 90% of the time is lost on so, so many ! The bill of Rights should have stated --- Responsible free speech .

Yes. It is not allowed here on HP and it is monitored pretty well. Plus you can report those who are really offensive.
People do not like to be banned and that is the reason (if not the only reason) it is pretty calm around here.

So we have freedom of speech in the US, but we also have a crime called "incitement to riot."If you want to commit that crime, what you need to do is get up in front of a group of people, and say some words. If the words you say make the crowd angry enough to run around assaulting other...

So, for those people who were arguing how "free speech" includes the "right" to "say whatever I want" no matter what the outcomes of your free speech are for other people (including getting people killed from your right to draw pictures that incite riots etc.), now I...

Is freedom of speech compromised in America today?It appears difficult to publish articles pertaining to racism, unless the racist in question is white skinned. It also appears difficult to publish articles pertaining to same-sex marriage if the article is anti-same-sex marriage; even if the...

Do we (Americans) have freedom of speech? If so should Joan Rivers’s apologies for what she said? Can we learn from this and other people who say what they think without considering the consequences while you have the right to say what you want you have to take responsibility for what you say. Is...
