Friendly reminder that "free speech" is about the *principles* of free speech.

Anything, anywhere, anytime is not a principle. It's a society-destroying extremist position when considering things like classified information, inciting violence, payola (and other false flag equivalents), verbal violence directed at children, slander & libel, and the list goes on and on.

Principles are what lead to restrictions under certain contexts in order to build a better society. Disagreeing on "better" is expected.
