Free speech is our ability to go to the town square stand on a soapbox and give our opinion.
Free speech is also our ability to set up a newspaper or web site, app or program, and use it to promote our point of view, or not to promote points of view which are odious to us and associated with war crimes, slavery, and genocide.
You don't get to use our free speech soapbox to promote your fascist point of view.
All You Fascists Bound To Lose
@js290 @hhardy01 I agree with you partially. The reason for the downfall of western culture is not because we don't censor or lack of tolerance, but lack of holding people accountable for their actions. Allowing people to blame their actions on how others treated them vs their personal choices, allows this breakdown as now all actions become allowable if the action is caused as a reaction to a severe enough cause.
Intolerance should not be of an individual, but based on a person´s actions.
@hhardy01 Actually, you CAN use a soapbox to promote any view you want. However, using the views to damage or hurt another person is not acceptable (yelling fire in a theater). The real issue is who gets to decide what I get to gain access to. Only I should decide that. What I do with that is my responsibility, not anyone else's. I pay the consequences of my actions, not the devs. To follow your thought, MANBLA cannot push their heinous man/child love agenda. Yet they do with freedom of speech.
YOU can't use OUR soapbox. Make your own.
You all are always making fun of normal Americans who are loyal to the Constitution and not to Russia.
If you lot are so smart, make your own social software.
Don't be all chanting "Blood and Soil" and "Jews will not replace us" carrying Swastikas at torch-lit protests like the Nazis and then be whining and all hurt if a German Jewish developer doesn't want to let you use his software for free.
