"Freedom of speech is a natural right, a human right. Your governments have legislated to restrict that right in many ways, and you being the obedient slave that you are have completely submitted to them."
Yes it's a right, which is defined by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.. which is a LAW, which is composed in your local LAW. Read up on it, instead of being such a toxic, ignorant moron.
Because I understand the law, and it's uses, I've submitted to "them"? The Danish government hasn't restricted it in any way, and they are the same in Australia. Are you an anarchist or something? I just follow the law.
"Yes, there are social consequences for saying nasty things, we all know and accept this. But the principle that you should not face criminal prosecution from your government for doing so should not be surrendered."
Of course it should not be surrendered, but that doesn't change anything that I said whatsoever. We should UNDERSTAND our rights, instead of being ignorant about them, like you.
"You should not be accepting laws that restrict your speech, and for those that exist, you should be petitioning and protesting until they are revoked."
Again, nothing to do with what I said. As soon as you say something, your rights have been upheld. If you're being punished afterwards, that has nothing to do with your freedom of speech not being upheld. Educate yourself.
Freedom of Speech guarantees you the right to be able to express yourself, not to protect you from what you say, if said thing breaks the law.
AS FREEDOM OF SPEECH DOESN'T EXEMPT YOU FROM THE LAW.
