Free Speech And Bad Info Have Consequences

I’m for free speech. However, when speech is harmful then it needs to be called out. Dangerous words are like fire that needs to be snuffed out. Sometimes that means people should lose their privileges on platforms where their bad info can become viral and mislead the masses.

  1. It was OK when newspapers and TV moderated the news, but now that we have so many ways of spreading hate and lies it is actually endangering freedom of speech as deplatforming becomes fashionable.

    Such a precious thing, and such a difficult subject.
