I see. You got some "parrot pills." You asked the same
question 4 times inter-dispersed with my admittedly lengthy
post that answered the question. In one sentence, There are
no "international" laws and none can be enforced that
"uncooperative countries" will follow or enforce.
You seem to think that existing laws are all that are
necessary. Maybe, but I think this "freedom to say and do
whatever you want" has gone too far.
Even in Canada, it has. I see vehicles and lawn signs that
say "F*ck Trudeau." That's a bridge too far, NOT because I
have a particular love for Trudeau. But, he's our PM. I
didn't care for Harper's policies, but I would NEVER (read
that again NEVER) have a sign that said "F*ck Harper" and I
would find one repulsive had they existed pre-2015.
Hate speech is spreading from the USA Republican
extremists too far and wide. We are a better country, and
the Charter be damned, but "freedom of speech/expression"
ought to include some civility, regardless of your ideological
political or religious views. Hate speech makes hate "OK"
and hate leads to violence.
Go ahead and call me a RWA or a LWA. I'm not. I long
for the days when "freedom" was balanced with civility and
decency. Are there no lines we can't cross in 2022? Look
at the hate directed toward minorities, immigrants, people
of non-WASP origin, the LGBTQIA2S+ community, etc. Is it
justified by "freedom?" Is that OK with you?
If it's too hot for you to type very much today, just
answer my previous paragraph.
