I fall between two stools here - I am a huge supporter of Free Speech but that does not give you the right to abuse or suppress anyone else so I also advocate some control here.
Hence the quandary who decides where the line is - The essence of Free Speech is to allow someone to stand up and say this is wrong a la a whistleblower but not say (very extreme idea for purpose of example) "All X, Y or Z people should be aborted". On the other side I think an ancient Greek poet wrote the line "Who guards the guardians?" meaning if you give all the power to some people (in this case the censors) what control do we have over them, I will leave this part of the argument with another quote "Power Corrupts, Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely".
As you can see I have no 100% correct answer but would tend towards over censorship as the lesser of two evils, I would prefer a few bruised egos rather than a few spreading insupportable hate that seems rational in their twisted minds.0
