The 4 Waves Of Freedom Of Speech
1st wave (nonexistent)
People are ‘entitled to freedom of speech’ so long as it doesn’t break the peace, encourages other people to commit crimes, defames etc.
People: Lee hsien loong, Singapore government, most singaporeans, communists, fascists
2nd wave (seditious)
It’s alright to offend (politicians, celebrities etc.) unless it concerns race or religion
People: Most people in Europe, most pro-opposition supporters in Singapore. Most ex ‘supporters’ of Amos Yee
3rd wave (the 1st amendment)
It’s alright to say anything as long as it doesn’t incite violence
People: Most people from the West. Most people who are sane. Most supporters of Amos Yee.
You should be able to say whatever you want, even if it incites violence, and not be punished by law. Therefore if Hitler existed today, he should not be sentenced.
People: Amos Yee
Which wave of freedom of speech are you? :S
