    Default Free Speech Has Never Existed - Rant

    It is interesting if you have a look at Free Speech in America you will realize that it has never existed. Does it really exist? common sense should make you realize that it has Never Existed. Common Sense is not very popular today. This site is an OBVIOUS confirmation. For example, I am writing a post here and directions are given at the very top of the page that automatically confirm that Free Speech doesn't exist.

    "Before You Post:
    Protect Your Anonymity -
    Do Not Share Your Identity - Do not post under a user name which may result in your being personally identified.
    Do Not Share Personal Details - Do not share personal information or details of your case which may result in your being personally identified.
    Use a Descriptive Title - The Title of your thread should indicate what your question is about.
    Be Concise - State your question clearly, and omit unnecessary details.
    Do Not Double-Post - Post your question only one time.
    This is a United States forum. We cannot help with questions relating to the laws of other countries"

    Freedom of Speech doesn't exist because we aren't even allowed to tell other people our real name and therefore we have to be "Anonymous" and make up fake names. A perfect example is the capitalistic hollywood terrorist group "Anonymous". Those with no balls will always wear a mask to hide their true Identity. I am not blaming this website but the system. This website is quite cool. Freedom of Speech has never existed and never will until this system changes. Capitalism, Socialism, and Communism have obviously failed.

    If you have money or are higher up in the system then you are allowed more "freedom" of speech. For example, if you are a college student and you openly, honestly, and peacefully express to a "Professor" that you don't agree with their point of view or philosophy you can be kicked out of school. The "Academics" and the brainwashed people who think they are better than other people because they have been indoctrinated by this ignorant educational system and have a PHD in Ego are allowed to play God with you and that is the truth. Some good teachers do exist but not that many. So, as I stated before "Freedom of Speech" doesn't exist and never has, only "Freedom of Acceptable Speech".

    I see I have been ranting on, lol... So, all of you "Academics" feel free to share your opinion.

    It appears you aren't too familiar with the actual concept of "Freedom of Speech".

    Now go forth. Go to your other thread. Then come back and tell us what you've learned.

    You need to really start with the FUNDAMENTALS of free speech, which you've not yet grasped. Go learn the difference between the GOVERNMENT impeeding speech and PRIVATE individuals or interests impeeding speech and how those two VERY different concepts differ.

    Ok, yeah I guess my question in "debating the issues" here would be why governments impeding speech and private individuals is any different? Why are they separate? If the system is fair then it shouldn't matter who you are and if you are part of the government or a janitor. Government and individuals are separate within the principle of Free Speech is what you're saying right? This is a philosophical question.

    Let's try again.

    Describe your understanding of that whole "freedom of speech" thingy.

    Obviously only those who have some type of hierarchy over others are allowed to speak freely and secretly. Honesty is not popular. It reminds me of this quote by Carlin, "If honesty were suddenly introduced into American life, the whole system would collapse! No one would know what to do! Honesty would **** this country up!"

    I am not into protesting like the "Occupy" thing but if you do protest you are placing yourself in the position of getting arrested or beat up. That is not freedom of speech. That is fascism - which is what America is and openly promotes.

    In America you can only talk about certain things and if you go beyond that things happen. This is common sense.

    In other words, what you're actually saying is...

    "I really don't know but I don't want to admit that and this is why I've brought George Carlin to the game".

    We call that a "red herring".

    Other than that, I have no idea how to dumb it down even further. I'm almost dismayed that you truly don't understand.

    Anyone else want to try?

    I'll play for a minute.

    You only get arrested when protesting if you break the law during said protest. Peaceful protests happen all the time. It is when they get out of control that you start having problems.
