Under a coconut shell
People should be free to do what they want to do as long as they don’t physically harm others.
Speech should be free.
There exists a country where people are very limited in what they can say. Lack of freedom makes people dumb. People don’t really have deep conversations about some certain topics because they can’t do so legally. Now they can’t even like or share a social media post. Tyranny. If they could, the dictators would install brain chips to prevent people from having certain thoughts. Despicable tyranny.
Want the society to move forward, intellectually? Why not start by keeping the military away from politics and ending the culture of fear and intimidation? What about freeing people’s speech, inviting rational debates? Let’s stop censoring what people can watch on TV, or what articles or books they can read, or telling them what color of clothes to wear. Let’s not jail people just because they express their honest thoughts.
Propagandas and censorships brainwash people and make them stupid.
Let’s make the society smarter by not being stupid.
