Is freedom of speech a beam of light or a realm of darkness?

Freedom is a beautiful phenomena when it comes to life and human nature but at the same time it can be  a weapon of mass destruction if used or taken in wrong context.


Speech is a way to express yourself and if given a little amount of freedom to it, you can put forth something according to your self intrests without external interference. There is this famous saying that “actions speak louder then words” and its very true as when you are free to speak you are free to act. Your speech tells alot about you as a person and if you support freedom for yourself then you should also be comfortable with freedom of others. The rights you desrve as a human should be equal to as of your other fellow beings.



Freedom in speech dosen’t means that you can insult or humiliate someone openly as thats not ethical and freedom supports ethics and justice thus this type of freedom is unacceptable. Free speech is one of our most important rights and one of the most misunderstood. One should be careful that their words don’t impact someone negatively as if you cannot say good then you should also restrain from saying out bad.


Freedom in speech can be used to protect intrests of minorities and people who are left behind in this rapidly growing world. You can freely condemn something you don’t like or you think is violating human rights. For instance you can freely raise your voice against the killing of innocent humans and this sadens me to say that people are killing eachother on the name of freedom.

What freedom are you fighting for when you are blind towards the freedom of others.


“Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see…”


Freedom on social media is emerging to be a great change in the system in which the world works as now things go viral before you know it. This can be taken as a great deal as now people can operate beyond their physical boundaries and can shed their influence globally. As the reach is so vast so one should be careful of portraying their right to exercise freedom in speech as people can get offended or agree to your message. I think everyone has their own unique way to express and to think and to ensure balance in this platform government interfernce is mandatory. The government or regulating authorities should ensure that their are laws present and are being acted upon by individuals without affecting peoples’ right to freedom.

Freedom of Expression is a Mere Illusion.

Freedom Of Speech

It is a mere illusion that we have set with the idea of freedom of speech. Freedom of speech was designed to create a voice of the unheard, a voice of change, a voice of the people in order for them to express what they wanted without having the consent to be judged by others in any way possible. But as time passed the freedom of speech became a little too repugnant. NVogue

Having freedom all together is a huge step into a growth of a nation, of its people, and of the society. It was used only to create an awareness of the problems, and to be heard of the cruelty that the people faced.

Before the idea of social media was even born,  speech was considered a crucial part of an individual’s life. It was the expression of your thoughts built into words that could influence the minds of others. It was used as weapon to fight for there own freedom. The freedom of slaves, African-Americans, Muslims, Kingship, Dictatorship, and so on. Through this idea of freedom of speech, many of them accomplished that they were hoping for.Pakistan Cyber Laws

Racists Comments

Then came the era of social media, where thoughts, expressions, moods, feelings, and fights were explained through a simple gesture without ever having to indulge with those people in real life. This is where we lost it all. This is where the idea of freedom of speech was lost and abused by hundreds and thousands of people on an hourly basis. We became obstructive in nature with all the hatred being passed on from one social platform to another. These people that have no regard of the ethical values of another human being or, even a moral standard of communicating, decide for themselves that they should create a violent atmosphere for everyone and condemn people of even having a single point of view of their own. We have established an immoral view of creating and being violent and hateful towards others.

Some of the examples of racism.

Through the usage of social media, a trend has followed us to be an illiterate with a laptop or a mobile. Social media itself has created this opportunity for individual’s to hate, to judge, to be a racist, to create a rumor that won’t even make sense, but having the power of freedom of speech, they will abuse it. Our minds are filled with the disgusting facts that don’t even exist and we keep on replicating our views according to false thoughts and yet, we demand a higher standard of education from our parents, to study in the top ranking universities, to create an obsessive greed for money, but even though you get everything you demand, you cannot learn the most crucial and important elements of life, which are morals, ethics and principles.

We have to condemn this usage of power over others, because this is only creating more and more hatred in this world. Freedom of speech is spreading awareness about your own thoughts, whatever goes in your head, but that still does not permit us into becoming complete jerks with no regard for a moral or ethical standard of communication.

I am with the idea of Freedom of Speech, but with a set of ethical and moral values attached with the comments. Stop this Hatred towards others, Stop this Judgement being passed onto others, and Stop with the Racial Slurs that you hit upon people.
