Is freedom of speech desired? According to the first amendment in US, there is an implied meaning that the individual has the right to say anything he wants without the need to worry about the government limiting his speech.(I believe this is also why President Trump is unable to do anything about the hate comments and negative news about him). This means that there will be implications that an individual has the freedom to offend whoever he wants (as he is able to say anything he wants). Doesn't this spread hate and tension between people? If so, why does the US government not want to amend the first amendment?
'Freedom is the right to tell people what they do not want to hear' I cannot really remember where i heard this quote, but this quote really speaks volume. If we really do give people freedom of speech doesnt it also mean we are giving individuals the power to create conflicts and hate ?
To sum up, my question is 'Is it really necessary to have freedom of speech in a society, especially in a globalizing economy where there are more interactions between different races and religion'.
