UNPOPULAR SPEECH: WHY WE MUST PROTECT IT

Image result for HATE SPEECH

“As much as we hate it, we have to protect it.”


Hate speech is free speech, what some have stated. But whether we realize it or not, hate speech is protected under the United States constitution. But a large reason why we have to protect even hate speech, is because once we administration, america, artstart giving up the ability to talk freely, then what next. Another reason we
must protect all speech is because who makes the decision on what’s hate. I have things I define as hate speech, but not everybody sees it that way. I may think one of my political views is right, while someone else sees it as a hateful thing to stand behind. And conversely speaking, what I dislike and see as hate speech is fine by someone else.

But lets go back to why we must protect even hate speech. For starters, it’s Related imagehard to protect a verbal means of communication that is probably geared toward not liking you. Only problem is, once I form a coalition to stop these individuals from speaking, then how long will it be before my rights are trampled on. Meaning, former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick was seen Related imageas hateful for not standing for the national anthem at a football game. But political commentator Ann Coulter was seen as pushing hate speech and was banned from Berkley College’s campus. Both expressing a freedom of speech, and both protested.

 

Now, Ann is in a different position considering she is an independent worker and Colin played for a team, but nonetheless expressed their free speech. They both not only expressed their right, but also did so in alignment with the laws of the land. And yet, a conservative right and liberal left silenced them both. While at the same time screamed my own rights are Image result for bill of rightsbeing infringed upon. Which brings me to another reason you must protect all speech because we are losing our rights in America. But we’re willing to take them from each other. It’s not even the government intervention. We’re taking each other’s rights, spying on each other in hopes of finding anything to take someone else’s job.

Now, another issue is brought into light with why you can’t censor someone’s speech. And that is, what is hate speech really? I have my interpretation for what is hate speech. But that is just the key word, “interpretation.” What I like may be seen as hate speech, and what you Related imagefollow might be seen as hate speech. This is why all speech must be protected no matter how incendiary. Because what we define as hate speech is so broad and wide, we we must allow all speech. As a matter of fact a way to deal with hate speech is more speech around hate speech. And if it’s hateful, let the people show their faces. We don’t want them hiding in the background, we want them up front where we can see them.

And in the end that’s the biggest problem. The fact that we are actively trying to censor people just because we disagree is so arrogant. Because it assumes we, as the person censoring them, have all the right answers. And Low Section of Man Against Skywe don’t because my truth and fact might be different as time progress. And
that next generation’s truth changes as well. So with so much changing in our society, we have no choice but to open up the forum for conversation. And if you disagree, how about the right to be offended. Yet it still never sinks in, until it’s too late. And by the time it’s too late, we’ve all would have already relinquished control; and it’ll be our own fault.

PASSION VS. INFATUATION: HOW FAR DOES YOUR EMOTIONS RUN

Related image

“To be in love, is to be obsessed.”


The definition of passion is to have a love, a longing, a wanting for someone else. A feeling that is described as heighten, yet under a controlled state. But to be infatuated is a totally different story. This is generally a person who is excessive with their passion to the point it becomes detrimental to ones self or another person’s life. Infatuated people are the ones who stalk and eventually lead to doing something harmful. Or not even the stalkers, what about the relationship people who are infatuated. So my question is, which one are you? Would you describe yourself as being infatuated or passionate? Are you situational in one area of your life and another in a different capacity?

See, to me, I think that under normal circumstances, we all tend to be passionate, with a touch of infatuation. Why because infatuation is excessive passion, so all passionate people have some form of infatuation. To me, it depends in what particular situation. You might be passionate about your love life, but infatuated to the point the person can’t leave your sights. If you’re with this person, you might be in a more abusive relationship. Simply because they are not able to control their passion so they tend to go overboard. You want just enough passion, but not too much where it becomes stalker like behavior. Well, the control is obvious things, but are normal people potential candidates for infatuation.

The answer is yes, and sad thing is, they may not even realize it. What do I mean by that, I mean a guy might tell the woman he’s with not to wear a certain article of clothing. Fine, then it becomes a constant you can’t wear this and you can’t wear that. Now he is becoming controlling with his passion for her. But is it all about the men, no you have that infatuation on the woman’s part as well. You have women who don’t realize themselves that they are not becoming infatuated with their passion. Meaning, if you are a woman who privately download apps on your man’s cell phone that tracks physical movements or calls that have been deleted, you’re infatuated. Or you could be the woman that goes through all his social media to see if you recognize a woman that you have never seen before. Then once you do, it formulates into an argument of some sort.

As you can see, passion and infatuation are closely related because passion is controlled wanting, and infatuation is uncontrolled passion. And when something becomes uncontrolled you begin to unravel. In the end, we all have that infatuation, that little bit of crazy. But most of us are more passionate leaning. We are the ones who tell our boyfriends and girlfriends, go out and have a good time. Versus the infatuated people who secretly get in their car and drive to the club and watch you to make sure no one speaks to you. So have a balance on the teeter totter of love with the passion being high, but not too high where it is completely in the air. Because now you have hit the point of infatuation.

HARNESS THEIR SKILL, NOT FORCE YOUR WILL: PARENTS WHO WANT THEIR CHILDREN TO BE WHAT THEY WANT THEM TO BE.

0

“They are not you, stop trying to make them you.”

For so many parents, they feel that telling their child what they’re going to do is what’s best for them. And most of the time, they’d be right for doing so. The only problem is that when a child decides to pursue a career that the parent is not comfortable with, then what? Do you think it’s your job to force your child into a certain career path? Do you feel you know what’s best for them in life? Do you think your child does not have the ability to make their own decisions, that’s why you’re there to guide them? And under normal circumstances, you would be right about all the questions I have just asked. But, what is meant by normal circumstances?

Normal circumstances relate to choices you want your child to make which will keep them safe and out of trouble. But what does them pursuing a certain career path and trouble have to do with anything? This is where parents have to release the reigns and allow their child entry into society on their own. Yet it’s still hard for some. And I don’t mean letting go like afraid for them to step into the world. I’m talking you as a parent enforcing your will onto them. Because you think that just because you raised them you know anything about them. As a matter of fact, I’m willing to bet you that you know very little about your child. Why? Because they allow you to see what they want you to see. It’s one of the reasons why parents are so shocked when incidents happen and they say, “Not my kid.”

Parents who force their will tend to not cultivate their child’s strengths along with the weaknesses. They don’t acknowledge a skill that is exemplary of their child. It’s choose this career, otherwise I can’t help you as your parent. How do you know your child wants this out of life? Or better yet, how do you even know that your child is good enough to succeed in what you want them to do? We all know that success comes from working hard, but is that all? Those super performers are the ones who want it more. Is this your child; a super performer? You see it in youth sports. The parent/s that come to the game like their child has already made it pro. They bring a barrage of beverages and supplies for their kid. Yet, their child is not the least bit athletic. They want their children to be them and/or what they want. Thinking it’ll make them a good parent, yet they’re actually more of a hindrance.

I guess in the end, the hardest job of a parent is knowing when to let go. Let go and let your children build their own lives. You want them to make their own decisions. Why? Because you are not prepared to be held responsible for them being unhappy in life. You’re quick to say, your happiness is not my problem. Then if that’s the case, neither is your opinion to me. But, you have parents that just flat out want the control. If they have nothing to control, then their lives aren’t complete. So their children are that piece of control they need. In this case it’s up to the child when they become and adult. When the child is an adult they have be willing to disobey their parent and go their own way. But, be ready to not accept your parent’s help. Yet, when you do succeed, they’ll respect you more.
