Imagine a world without physical violence. People could only argue until red in the face. No matter how angry people got, noone could get hurt. Imagine a world where governments didn’t have nukes or armies, and they were forced to settle their differences verbally.
The world is full of violence. The internet gives people a way to settle their differences without throwing rocks. Without throwing nuclear bombs.
Outlawing ‘offensive’ language online is not the way to a safer, calmer world. We need the internet to argue and settle differences peacefully.
Being ‘offended’ never hurt anyone and never will. Not liking what you see or hear is the price you pay to be able to speak freely yourself. Do not let governments outlaw offensive language online. People have been fighting since the dawn of humanity. The internet is the only safe environment that lets the entire world fight it out safely.
The internet is a collection of private computer networks joined together to make a giant one. Is not owned by governments. Do not let them take it from us.
The light at the end of the tunnel is a burning flamewar.
