Should people be able to say anything?

Yes

VS.

No

Side Score: 15

As an individual who moderately identifies toward Libertarian social values and operation, I believe that anyone should have the right to speak absolutely anything. There should never be limitations on what we can and cannot say. This includes the concept of 'hate speech'. As human beings, when we say or do anything, we also must accept the consequences for stating those opinions.

I believe that someone should have the right to walk up to a Black man and call him the N word. I also believe that the Black man should then have the right to beat the shit out of that guy for being a racist shithead.

In the same vein of being able to run businesses exactly how one wants, and running the risk of going out of business for how its run, we need a society where we are taught that our actions have consequences. We learn the best and most concrete lessons by experiencing ramifications for our words and actions.

Just because you can, does not mean you should.

It sure as hell does not mean you should be free of consequences, like people calling you an ass and a liar and an idiot, or suing you for slander.

Good manners and restraint are not mandatory, but they sure reduce social friction, and help societal machinery work better.

Without the freedom of choice, and its logical extension of expression: speech, one has nothing to lose. Likewise, all should be held accountable to that speech.

It's debatable on being able to say anything. Honestly I can see both sides to it. The rest of the quote, specifically the part about being able to do anything under freedom of expression, I disagree with.

Side: No

You can’t slander, incite violence, conspire to commit a crime. There are a number of forms of speech not allowed.
