It may sound like a boring question to some.  But whenever I think of free speech, stretching it too much seems to make the civilized and uncivilized 'components' merge.  So I presumed there gotta be a thin line between them.  Any thoughts?  Just curious  laugh

No, it isn't a boring question, but it's a tricky and volatile one  teethsmile   It doesn't seem to have much uniformity and keeps varying from community to community.  Apparently people keep manipulating it to suit their needs. 

In order to promote a more standard and consistent ideology, the basic concept of 'free speech' clearly needs to be revised.  it ought to be stated as 'free peaceful speech' and 'peaceful assembly.'

If a person's discourse, meetings or demonstrations pose a threat to disrupting the peace & tranquility of a community, with the possibility of leading to hatred, killings or rioting, then that would be a very legitimate reason to draw a line on the liberties of free speech.    Peace and security are synonymous with freedom (including freedom to express one's opinion).  But antagonism leading to violence defies the very concept on which the law for such freedom is created. 

I wonder if that made much sense  simpsons
