Have you ever thought about saying something inappropriate, but you stopped yourself from doing it because you knew you were going to either cause problems or get in trouble? That is a reason why people should not be able to say or write whatever they want. People would constantly get in trouble and harm other people’s feelings or their way of life. People should not be able to say or write whatever they want because it will prevent people from constantly getting in trouble for saying inappropriate things, and it will prevent lawsuits from happening due to what a person said.

People should not be able to say or write whatever they want because it will prevent people from constantly getting in trouble for saying inappropriate things. One piece of evidence that supports this statement is this, “Twitter later removed some of the offending tweets” (Racist Users par. 4). This means that Twitter has had problems with people posting things they shouldn’t and getting in trouble for it. This matters because it shows how people are saying inappropriate things that are getting people in trouble even the companies.

This relates to the main point because it is supporting the idea that people should not be able to say or write whatever they want. Another piece of evidence that supports the main point is this statement, “In October, Twitter suspended the account of a neo-Nazi group in Germany following a request from the government in Berlin” (Racist Users par. 7). This means that Twitter had to take actions to prevent people from saying inappropriate or racist things online.

This matters because it shows that people around the world are saying inappropriate things online, and people are preventing people from saying whatever they want. In conclusion, people should not be able to write whatever they want because it gets people in trouble. People should not be able to say or write whatever they want because it would prevent lawsuits from happening due to what a person said. A strong piece of evidence that supports the main point is this statement, “A French court has ruled Twitter, which has steadfastly refused calls to police its millions of users, must hand over data to help identify the authors of racist or anti-Semitic tweets” (Racist Users par. 1).

This means that someone has filed a lawsuit towards the person saying inappropriate things, and it has caused the court to have Twitter help find the racist person. This matters because it shows people that a lawsuit has happened due to what a person said, and people should not be able to say or write whatever they want. This demonstrates the main point because people should not be able to say or write whatever they want because it would have prevented this lawsuit.

Another good piece of evidence to support the main point is this statement, “ The United States has never offered a sustained defense of free expression in response to such demands, and has even signaled to the Muslim world that it is willing to restrict speech” (Resist it par. 5). This piece of evidence means that the United States has offended the Muslim world, which is against free speech, and the Muslim’s might want to have a lawsuit. This matters because it shows people that even countries can say offending things to each other and still sue each other.

This relates to the main point because people should not be able to say or write whatever they want because it would prevent a lawsuit. In conclusion, people aren’t the only reasons that people sue each other their governments can be a factor as well. People would disagree with these points of why people should not be able to say or write whatever they want because people would say that it goes against the first amendment, and it prevent people from expressing themselves. These two reasons are incorrect because both of these can cause disputes between people.

A piece of evidence that would support people who want free speech is this, “In the United States, freedom of speech is guaranteed by the First Amendment of the U. S. Constitution, the highest law in the land. This law protects what individuals say, what they write, and their right to meet freely with other people in just about any forum: clubs, demonstrations, organizations, and rallies. This cherished protection applies to everyone in the United States” (Free Speech par. 1).

This quote means that the freedom of speech is in the first amendment and people believe it because they are supposed to. What this argument overlooks is that people can say or write things that are appropriate not inappropriate. Another statement that supports the main point is this one, “On the Internet, people can publish themselves, and their messages are instantly distributed around the globe” (Free Speech par. 4). This means that on the Internet people can do whatever they want, and people believe this because it is true.

What this argument fails to consider is that the web has problems that people can run into, and since people can say or write whatever they want it will cause even more problems. Both arguments are false because it goes against the right things people should do. In conclusion, people should not be able to do whatever they want because they think they have the right to do it. When people do whatever they want it causes constant problems that can cause potential harm to someone.
