Create a Freedom of Speech Act and Bring an End to "Hate Speech" laws
background
For several years now the government has been infringing peoples' most basic rights to speak freely on matters, by deeming their speech "offensive" or "hateful" and declaring that such speech, even online, warrants being fined or jailed. This is an outrage.
additional details
We demand the legal right to Free Speech, in an Act which will bring an end to the ludicrous notion that "hate speech" and "offensive speech" deserves people be imprisoned or charged. In short, an Act to codify the citizens' right to freedom of speech without government intervention.Ideas must be fought with other ideas, not with force.Naturally this precludes that the current laws criminalizing "hate speech" be rescinded.
