    Constitutionally protected Freedom of Speech is NOT for the benefit of any individual. It is a necessary part of freedom of society. As a consequence, the limits to it relate to where society achieves no gain - such as the publication of child pornography. The protection and limits do NOT relate to an individual freedom.

    Freedom of speech does not include any lies nor false statements.

      Or incidentally, government officials in the pursuit of their duties, fighting words or the transmission of child pornography.

    Because some people saw 'free speech' as an opportunity to incite hatred and racism. The world doesn't need this type of crap.

    We still have freedom of speech.

    We do not have freedom from the consequences of what we say.

    It died long time ago. Inventing 'hate speech' and political correctedness killed it.

    Because people are too self-centered and think, everything is about them. 

    Whatever you say, someone will be butthurt because people think the world owes them or what and they stay in this kindergarden maturity level instead of realizing that somebody else's opinion does not matter. What matters is how you react to them.

    'Freedom of Speech' still exists, however if your inciting hate or encouraging any acts of violence, your likely end up in a Police cell.

      Not if you can identify yourself with the Left.

    You can still stand on a street corner and say what you want. But social media is owned by corporations and they have the ability to censor what is being said on the forums they own. But you can set up your own website and say whatever you want.

    Freedom of speech has long gone thanks to the PC brigade. I will say what I like in my own country and the immigrants can go to hell.
