Censorship Doesn’t Equal Freedom

It bothers me when people demand their right to free speech, while at the same time trying to censor contradictory opinions.  I see this coming from both sides of the fence.

However, you can’t have freedom of speech and censorship.  They are contradictory terms.  Allowing this behavior will erode our freedoms and in the end we all lose.

What are your thoughts on this matter?

  1. The U.S. has the right of free speech (1st Amendment) written into its Constitution. It is a powerful, natural right…in theory. Practical application is another issue. Best example of curbing said natural right…you can’t yell “Fire” in a crowded movie theatre. While, such an action is, technically, free speech, said speech has consequences.

    In a perfect world, anyone would be free to say anything. The flip side of that is, you are NOT free from the, above, stated consequences…or rebuttal…or dissent.

    And, not all countries have “1st Amendment” right to speak, tho, these days, the right to speak freely is under attack no matter where you are standing.

    No living creature has absolute freedom and that includes us humans. One third of the 7.5 billion humans on planet earth struggle to survive and those who live in the rich western democracies have the greatest freedom due to the much higher standard of living . None the less even to these rich nations millions have to work

    Money brings freedom and relieves us of the necessity of working but then we have to decide how to pass our time , how to become happy and how to avoid boredom and even then there is the fear of disease.
