The Principle of Free Speech, Ryan Field Books

The Principle of Free Speech

We all know that Free Speech means the government can’t arrest you for what you say. That’s just a basic definition, without details. And no one else has to host your opinions or even listen to you. But does that mean other people have the right to censor you? And what about Free Speech in a broader more general sense, as a concept and a principle? Because it’s not something that is only government-related. Free Speech is a principle that affects everything. 

Social media has been calling all the shots for us lately, with regard to Free Speech. Yes, they are private companies and they can do whatever they want. But should we support people who do not respect the principles of Free Speech? If you don’t like what I have to say you can always stop reading this blog, but should Google have the right to censor my speech? 

Universal Declaration of Human Rights (1948)—Article 19 states that “Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers”

Here’s more. If we continue to allow social media giants to pick and choose what we see on social media we are heading for some serious trouble. My only point is that we should all have choices. I might not want to listen to what you say, and I might block you, but I would never take away your right to say it.

“A wonderful story that I loved. The characters were well developed, and strong. Gus: A sweet young man. Doing something for all the wrong reasons. Craig: his boyfriend, he’ll go along with anything Gus say. Henry: Gus father a no nonsense man, who’s husband died last year. I enjoyed this story.”
