“Lack of freedom of speech creates a closed mind, built up anger, bigotry and self imposed doubt” ~ Halina

My Polish parents immigrated to the USA because of oppression imposed by Russian communism. Even after they arrived in America they were reluctant to express themselves on any theme. Fear occupies a mindset and is a strong realm to shake off!

As social beings, we all need to express joy and pain and seek support from others. Suppressing freedom of speech is imposing power over the individual. It is a method to establish ownership. A
boxed-in-mindset results in nurturing spoon-fed lies. Lack of freedom of speech creates a closed mind, built-up anger, bigotry, and self-imposed doubt because there’s nothing to compare a personal opinion with.

If a meter-reading is absent there’s no reason to grow and thrive. However, with every right there is responsibility. Abusing freedom of speech, such as slander, is just as destructive as lack of freedom of speech.
