The idea that one day you might not have freedom of speech in your daily life is rather horrifying, amirite?

You know when you get a weird thought, for instance, "I want to spread jam on your chest and slide around the school", and you keep thinking, "DON'T SAY THAT!", I'd imagine that's what it's like to not have freedom of speech, except all the time and a Hell of a lot worse.

Those days are already here.

for some reason
I don't why
this doesn't scare me

well in comparison to the other rights

I don't know if you mean that it was taken away legally
or if I lost my ability to speak
but yeah
either way

@VicZinc What other rights?

I was thinking pursuit of Happiness
but now that I think about it
I'm not scared of losing that either
hmm hmm smilie

I'm not scared of losing any of my rights
right to live
right to move
whatever it is
bring it on!

even if freedom of religion was taken away
no one can stop me from thought-crime

I am scared of torture though
does that fall under a right? wary smilie

it seems to me rights are connected to each other
losing one can mean losing another?

So is it that you are not afraid that you will lose it
(as in: it is high unlikely I will lose it so I am not afraid of this)
or
that even if you did lose it, meh, no big deal.

Like, I am not afraid of being gored by a unicorn vs. bring it on you one-horned devils!

HEY
that could be it
the first thing you mentioned

I mean that makes sense and all

but then I think about it again
and my rights can easily be taken away
it could be that I feel like I can be okay without my rights

I'm not okay with it
but I feel like I could handle it just fine

I mean
I can imagine these things happening
and it doesn't fill me with fear

maybe it's a mixture of the first thing you said
and me feeling I can handle it

If that happens, I will consider the world in bad enough shape that I will no longer see a reason to live. Free from the burden of trying to prolong my life, I will wage war on my local police department for enforcing such laws.

@fuzala you could follow in the steps of the Freedom Riders

The Freedom Riders didn't seem very violent. I am talking about a massive amount of violence.

@Mike_Hawk The Freedom Riders didn't seem very violent. I am talking about a massive amount of violence.

exactly

I thought they did a pretty good job even with the bus incident

but yeah
violence is necessary sometimes

I'm in AP US History learning about the Espionage and Sedition Acts right now
