While reading some posts, and thinking ( yes I do think sometimes) there is a lot od discent and groupthink on some threads. It got me wondering what countries have freedom of speech enshrined in law as their right. I can only think of Amrrica, I know my own country Australia does not have freedom of speech, it's taken as a given. Does your country have freedom of speech?
Stan, you're holding a gun to God's head. I can't think of a metaphor that's better than this.

Although the USA does have The Freedom of Speech as our founding fathers gave us, it's not as free as one would like. The old saying,"Sticks and stones may break our hearts but words can never hurt us," is a bunch of bull. If you say what's on your mind now days, you had better be prepared for trouble!

Probably so, but more people may of disappeared in the USSR during that time than here in the States. We count our prisoners that land in jail, but when you ship a few million to Siberia, WHO'S COUNTING...

So true. What worries me and we have this evil in Australia, if you disagree with someone's point of view, some turn violent instead of putting forward a logical counterargument. Are we getting duller and duller with the passing of each generation?
