She writes that, "a policymaking tool is needed to draw the line between speech that should be sanctioned and speech that must be tolerated in the name of freedom of expression, no matter how ugly it may be" (Benesch 250). This exemplifies two types of common fallacies. The first is the SLIPPERY SLOPE fallacy because it almost states that one change will lead to another, and it can be a negative or positive result. The second fallacy is CONFIRMATION BIAS because it confirms her own standpoint and belief, opposed to contrary evidence. She states that the government has even tried to place censorships on technology and the media which has not worked.
Such censorship would lead to a totalitarian rule by the majority . While hate speech should be better understood, bigoted acts should not be included in hate speech or harmful subjective phrases. hate speech has become a spotlight topic and there is a discussion if free speech should protect it. The main opposition against free speech being an
How did the judiciary of the Netherlands solve the conflict between freedom of expression and discriminatory hate speech in the second wilders case? Introduction The right to freedom of speech is a fundamental human right protected by treaties of several global and European institutions. In a democracy it might be necessary to avoid certain forms of speech that offend or promote hatred against others based on intolerance. The right to freedom of expression is considered essential for politicians and specifically for opposition politicians. The two Wilders cases display the conflict that can arise between freedom of speech and between the protection of a group of people from discriminatory hate speech.
Despite Tom and Myrtle being trapped characters, the author was able reveal fundamental truths about society from their point of limited freedom. Nonetheless, these truths clashed as a result of them being extracted by a member of society. The marriages in The Great Gatsby are superficial but we cannot consider them true; therefore, the resulting message is a synthesis of these two aspects. Furthermore, Fitzgerald’s critique of society is an exemplar for all writers who wish to do so because in it, he effectively demonstrates the effects of societal influence on the critique. It is no wonder that artists who attack society often exclude themselves from it; they are trying to limit how they become influenced.
Yet it is most important for a Democratic government. A government that is democratic most allow its people to speak and express themselves about the issues that concern them and what they think the government is doing right and what the government is doing wrong. As stated in the article Importance of freedom of Expression “A government that does not know what the people feel and think is playing a risky game. The government that doesn 't allow free speech runs a risk of destroying the creative nature of its people.”
This model presupposes an important distinction between politics and the political. Politics is referred to the ensemble of practices, discourses and institutions which seek to establish the sphere what every people can live side by side although they are in conflictual positions against themselves. The political, on the other hand, is referred to the dimension of antagonism that lies under people’s relations (it can take different types). So under the Mouffe’s democracy, politics’ main aim is to conceive others not as enemy but adversaries. She calls this transformation “antagonism to agonism”.
In contrast to the political speech, it is most likely to influence the citizens’ mind. In a democratic country, citizens can blatantly condemn the government and debate the public issues wherefore the political freedom of expression
The way the government controls the people, censorship on certain information, how media and technology have affected people, and society's views on opinions and access to knowledge are what makes a society that is different or similar from other societies. A difference in these traits can make a society crumble to a dystopia. The freedom of the lives in these societies can change depending on the condition of their society, whether it be an oppressive, controlling society or a free and open society. By analyzing and studying these factors, we can understand what makes a society and how to support
Media information has a huge impact of how people think about different society problems and subjects. Many opinions can change because of what the media tells the audience. Freedom of speech is a vital of democratic structure and humans rights, but on the other hand media can be misused for propaganda purposes such as spread rumours and create more tense in a conflict (Kuusik, 2010, The Role of the Media in Peace
