Should Governments Ever Limit Free Speech?
There is not enough harmful speech to justify the government limiting it.
These policies just emphasis the human error seen in some forms of speech as opposed to addressing the root of the problem, which is a lack of community.
There is no evidence that speech can be harmful.
Crimes from making false claims such as fraud and tax evasion are much more
than violent crime. Perjury would be protected speech if all speech was free.
The original argument was that the government should never limit free speech. Just because there is not much harmful speech doesn't mean that some of that harmful speech shouldn't be limited provided that the adverse effects of that limiting are smaller than the benefits of limiting it.
