Re: Freedom of speech: Can it survive?
How so? Wire tappings are in many ways connect to the very same issue because they prove that the goverment is limiting freedom of speech. If the goverment wishes to stop protests (ect) then they can use the guise of "waging the war on terror" to find people and silence them. Abusing a person's rights is not because you disagree with them, it is when you attack them. I mean look at the racism, it was once socially acceptable to be racist, however that is no longer true. That is because the law stopped it, because racism violated the rights of other people.
P.S. the reason why i used racism as an example is that racism and freedom of speech both connect to constitution and the bill of rights.
