Did you know that "freespeech as long as it doesnt offend anyone" is NOT freespeech?

Update:

The liberals are trying to prohibit any speech they deem as "offensive". Imagine being jailed because you told a joke and somebody was offended.

    chatting is not allowed here.

    Where I live, we have freedom to express an opinion instead of "free speech", and I like it that way.

    "the holocaust never happened", "humans come in races" and "you can drink bleach without risking your health" are not opinions

    Did you know that free speech does not grant you immunity against complaints about what you say? The free speech of the other gives them the same right to counter your statement as it gives you the right to make the statement in the first place. Getting told that you are full of it is not restricting your speech.

    This is no kind of Chemistry question. It needs moving to a different category, probably Polls & Surveys.

    (Of course I knew it, but I doubt you're really interested in that.)

    ("Freespeech" does not protect the speaker from being thought a fool or worse by anyone who hears it if the speech is foolish or dangerous.)

    Yes.

    But just because saying something is legally permissible, it doesn't follow that it is correct or moral to do so.

    I mean, I'm legally allowed to call you a pencil d!cked little c**t badger, but I won't, because it is rude. A society without courtesy is barely a society at all.

    People shouldn't need to be forced into treating others with respect and dignity, and things have gone wrong on so many levels if that has become the case.
