Free Speech – “Democracy has become a Victim of Democracy”

Free Speech – “Democracy has become a Victim of Democracy”

Jurisprudence is jousting with “Free Speech”
Tyranny is testing the limits of “Human Rights”
Racial intolerance is now an initiate of “War” and not “Colour”
Cannibalism is killing “Egalitarianism”
A concocted security is suppressing "Reality"

The real issue is not free speech but rather “free thought”. The mind is tempered by the behaviour of the physical and ethereal world. Free speech is the expressed catharsis of free thought. Free thought is as “free will” – implanted in human beings by God. Should one amputate one’s ability to speak freely, you in fact amputate free thinking. It becomes the virtual act of lobotomizing the latter.

The measure of one’s life can be quantified on a scorecard. It is the addition of every smell you draw in, every sight you see, every sound you hear, every touch you feel, every word you speak and every thought you think. As Rene Descartes said some time ago, “I think, so I am”. Today it is more relevant to say “I speak to hear the am in me”.

Free speech is the only manner in which to address the killer who thinks not of killing, but rather kills, to address the thief who thinks not of stealing, but rather steals and liars who think not of lying, but rather lie to hide the truth – politicians, bankers are but a couple.

If we suppress free speech, we are destined to live in a world of secrets – better known as “The Darkness”.

Thank you,
