I feel that an easy rule to apply is that speech about hurting or even killing others is unambiguously bad speech

Everything else is up for debate. But this single exception I hope every human being can agree on.




Can every human being agree that military recruitment ads are unambiguously bad speech?


How about you go and campaign to ban major news networks from reporting on successful drone strikes and bombing raids in Iraq/Syria /other such places.


Reporting on harm is not the same as inciting harm


Except when it is.
