    I can't say I do. Society has a vested interest in self regulation and internal cultural consistency. Shaming people for things like being racist and other antisocial behaviors is perfectly acceptable and in cases, a good thing.

    This does not mean government should get into the business of regulating speech though.

    Right, and in a free country, I shouldn't have to worry about any backlash because of me simply voicing my opinion. Deal with that.

    Case in point that the internet is, in fact, srs ****ing bsns.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    I do agree on many levels, and I think self regulation is a proper means through which we can eliminate government coercion. But I just see the level of Social Brother (right, not even Big Brother) surveillance into our lives and if anyone messes up, even once, then it will have life destroying consequences. But it really does feel as if we are getting to a point that because of the tech we have, and the databasing, and the searching algorithms that it is becoming harder and harder to be an individual. And that is not a good thing.

    Actually you should if that opinion is unacceptable to people in a greater society.

    I agree. Its one of the flaws of human nature. People love being social and these software platforms let us scratch that mental itch. Its not going to get better unless people evolve away as its rarely a conscious decision to participate.

    The biggest flaw, IMO, of human nature is that because of it anarchy cannot work.

    I do think we are approaching a line wherein we can place reasonable restrictions upon government and business to maintain our freedom. Right? They're always saying we should accept "reasonable" restriction to our rights for the sake of functional government or public safety; that door swings both ways.

    We crossed that line a long time ago. There is a reason businesses have been employing psychologists in their advertising campaigns. They take advantage of us by knowing our flaws and have been doing so for a long while now.

    If I walk up to you and call you an "ugly ****ing N******" I should not have to fear reprisal from your fist for exercising my freedoms?
    But, that's not what happened. This cat simply expressed his disagreement with Chick Filet's managment's public opinion on gay marriage. Is he an asshole? Sure, but there is nothing in the criminal code that makes being as asshole a crime.

    This dude shouldn't be punished for expressing his opinion, just like Chick Filet shouldn't be boycotted because it's managment expressed it's opinion.

    So if I owned a business and I advocated for ****ing babies (but never did it or anything illegal beyond having an opinion), i wouldn't deserve a boycott?

    seriously?
