What are the limits to the right to free speech?
In the U.S., as in other countries, there exist certain groups or organizations who promote the superiority of particular ethnic, racial, and/or religious types over others, even to the point of flirting with the notion of violently forcing their views upon society. These groups will promote the idea that another class of people are evil and/or inferior and deserve to be punished, enslaved, and/or wiped out. Such groups are the Aryan Nations, the KKK, the American Nazi Party, The Black Muslims, etc., etc. For an interesting overview of just what groups exist and how many there are please check this out :www.splcenter.org/get-informed/hate-map
1- To what extent, if any, should these groups have the right to express what they want to say? Can you justify the right to free speech for these groups, and if so how would you justify it? Or do you think that these things should be censored, and if so to what extent? Entirely, partially?
So this is a fairly touchy topic- I want everyone on their best behavior no matter how angry this topic may make you. Maybe you won’t get angry. That’s fine because the point is not to make you mad, its to make you think. Nevertheless be fair and think before you react.
