Not sure why I'm optimistic but I tend to think the voices calling for censorship are very loud and in the vast minority.

My concern mostly comes from talking with regular people, the more they come in contact with differing views the more they want to control and restrict them. Few support free speech.

I think you are right. In my country we brag about democracy and free speech. Reality is that we have no free speech and everyone knows that deep inside.

Pretty silly what happened to Lars Hedegaard, both the attempted assassination and the state prosecution.

Something about critic of Islam. It's creepy how 'bad' it is when we are critics of this topic.

I think I have to look into this guy. Not sure what the story is about.

-the assassination attempt would be very bad if it was done to stop his freedom of expression, something they themselves punished him for a couple years earlier, hypocritical.

He criticized stuff related to Islam, someone (Maybe ISIS) tried to assassinate him. The state prosecuted him for hate speech, the silly thing was that Denmark remarked that the crime-

Most regular people I talk to want to put in legal restrictions on what they see as harmful or immoral speech, racism, sexism, anti-homosexual, even fictional works that think wrong.

You live in California?

A progressive place (or regressive if you like), but I think it is a general uptick in the sentiment since social media came along.

Since big box social media started gaming feeds to look like there's extremists everywhere, yeah. Fear tactics.

It works, we are sort of hardwired towards making decisions to survive in the jungle.
