    Censor... No.

    Stop indoctrination, yes.
    The left says the right is full of racists and bigots and have no tolerance. Nobody from the right organizes interference with gay pride parades, or other leftist events. The left however always has a group interfering with events organized by the right. Who are the tolerant ones I ask? Most certainly not the left.

    There are too many variable. Too many laws. We need to reduce the laws, and go back to what makes sense instead of trying to make people's thoughts illegal.


    So much fail in such a short post! Nothing even worth addressing in there. Git gud.

    Your side wants to squash critical thinking. Critical thinking is anathema to fascism and hate speech, and that is why y'all hate it.

    People crave bans on speech when their arguments are nonsensical.

    It seems the side that wants censorship laws wants to do that.

    It was social liberals who stand for obscenity laws. And for restricting or banning violent video games. And for banning certain books. And for keeping science out of the classroom (something you would definitely know about ). And for prohibition.

    Oh wait a minute...I meant social conservatives...

    It's no different that is having age appropriate anything.

    As for prohibition?

    Why doesn't the left learn from past mistakes?

    Did you miss the fact that it is social conservatives who have favored prohibition?

    It was around 80% across the board back then. Funny how conservatives learn from the past but liberals don't.

    Everybody gets to make their moral or political argument, and policy is decided based on the majority opinion on which argument is most persuasive, subject to the rules of a constitution or similar document.
    That wasnt even my argument, depending on your clients you might be defending people whos sole purpose is detrimental to the well being those advocates are trying to protect.

    Re: Why America needs a hate speech law

    The problem with hate speech laws is that they can be used against books like The Bell Curve. The Bell Curve is an important book that has inspired efforts to cut welfare payments, increase punishment for criminals, stop affirmative action policies, and curb third world immigration.
