Hear no evil, See no Evil, (and you will) Speak no Evil.
We have known this for a while. The great philosophers agree, there is a place for tragedy, but where that place is lies a fine line.
I don't think one person can draw that line, but I think collectively we may want to rethink the current lines.
To draw lines in free speech, we must do so democratically and with great care.
The same argument arises with "Hate Speach"
Do we protect someone's right to say God hates certain people? Because this is real it is more damaging then the movie.
Personally I don't think we should have the freedom to spread Hate towards any group of people.
Except elected officials. It is our right to disagree with the government, and we should not be limited in what we can say about it.
Free Speech is a gift, we must be careful if and when we give it away.
