Letters: Speech in Britain

November 13, 2012

Re “Britain wrestles with free speech on the web,” Nov. 9

Dissent is as important as civility, and Britain, unlike the U.S, at least has attempted to address some of the dangers in how speech is used and abused and how destructive uncivil speech can be.

When one listens to pundits on Fox News or some talk radio stations and hears the hatred and fear that is fomented, one can understand why such speech is outlawed in some Western countries.

I never thought I would live in a nation that would lose its perspective about what constitutes free speech and what foments hatred.
