Most European countries have already given up their free speech rights, at least as Americans see free speech. I suspect most Europeans don’t even realize how much they never had and how much they have lost.
The Federalist has a good article on the sad shape of free speech in America: The Coming Free Speech Apocalypse. I am certain most have no idea how much Hillary and the Democrat Party are against free speech nor that they have plans for limiting speech in the Democrat platform. She has to hate repeatedly being called out on her lies.
If you are thinking Trump is a conservative supporter of free speech, back up. He has plans to change libel laws and a history of using them to beat down his opposition (pre-political). He also has plans to curtail speech on the Internet… well, most all the politicians do. The idea of Super Pacs, which are American citizens banning together to create political action groups to counter corporations and the wealthy, is a major pain for Trump.
The GPO is spineless and offers no resistance to Trump’s strongman tactics. So, they offer free speech no protection.
Even fewer people have realized the liberally educated millennials have no love for free speech. They claim they are for it, but when pressed they show ignorance of what free speech actually is or why Americas with an understanding choose to tolerate hate speech.
Something like 40% of America is against free speech and think the government should control it and colleges should have speech rules. Something like 2/3’s of Americans are all for limiting ‘hate’ speech without ever having a single concern about who gets to decide what is hate speech.
Second Life has never been a bastion of free speech. With 60+% of SL residents being liberal/socialist I suppose it is to be expected no is no love of free speech.
May be a race of space aliens with brains and an understanding of what freedom is will show up and open an immigration service…
