The quiet death of free speech

Before you watch my video below, I recommend you watch this one first (particularly the last minute or so). Recent drama between YouTube users “dprjones” and “VenomFangX” is a prime example of how one person can strip another of his freedom of speech for a year, while the world cheers, oblivious to what they’re really approving.

Do we really want to build a world where everyone has to watch their every word, for fear of reprisal? Do we want to regress to the era when religion dictated what we could and couldn’t say? No? Then let’s stop denying others the freedom to speak.
