Different decade, same story

No one wanted to think about the gangs of no-hope teenagers who already took over the nearby park all day, drinking lager and waiting for something to happen to them, trapped in a forgotten village in no-man’s land between a ten-shop town and an amorphous industrial sprawl.

Free speech vs hate speech

Where’s the line?

There’s that famous quote:

I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it

Evelyn Beatrice Hall

My issue here is about what happens when, what you say is to exhort the mobs to take away someone else’s right to speech, life, or dignity.

Does your right to free speech still supercede others’ rights to speech or life?
What if you’re actively supporting, for narrow financial reasons, someone who promises to take away others’ rights to speech or life?

Where is the line?
