Re: Free Speech and Political Correctness
>when it comes to demonising and insulting others who most demand redress and apology when it offends them or they don't agree with what is being said.
Human are hypocrites, even you or me. unrestrained free speech has some downsides. You may have to sue someone in civil court. You may have to 'demand' a public apology. You may get in some very heated arguments.
But counter to that, here in the US the congress is trying to push some very dangerous anti-free speech laws where armed police officers can come arrest you for 'insulting others' or poorly defined 'hate speech'. Put me with the armchair fascists on this one, real fascists with the law and a gun are far more dangerous.
