    “Hate speech” is free speech. “

    Hate speech” is free speech.

    “Hate speech” isn’t real.

    “Hate speech” is subjective.

    “Hate speech” didn’t exist as a term 50 years ago.

    “Hate speech” is 1984 Wrong Think.

      Consider this: Hate speech enabled the Holocaust

    2. LogicalFallacy


      We need a definition of what hate speech is before deciding what should and should not be allowed.


      "Jews control all the worlds money because they are [insert term or label]" I guess some would call this hate speech, but I think it should be allowed (For reasons to complex to go into on an update)


      "Jews control all the worlds money because they are [insert term or label] we should kill them" THIS is hate speech, this is what enabled the holocaust.


      The first example shouldn't be tolerated or banned - people can rightly speak against this speech


      The second example shouldn't be tolerated and should be banned.


      It doesn't take much to go from banning the first example to saying you are not allowed to say... call religious people deluded, or proclaim religion to be a virus. So we need to think carefully about what kind of speech we should allow, but not necessarily tolerate.


      PS... see there was a bit of considering there. But the subject is huge... maybe something to bring up in ToT?

      Free speech.  I thought that was our right.
