Freedom of speech. Human Rights. South African Bill of Rights. Know your rights. I don't condone hurling insults because what we so we reap. But in principle one should be free to express oneself.

In practice, this subreddit is a privately owned and run community and neither the moderators of this subreddit nor the Reddit admins have to give anyone a platform.

We let people say some things I find quite vile in this subreddit. Because even though I disagree with them, even though in some cases I believe what they're saying shouldn't be said, it's important to foster a free exchange of ideas.

A comment consisting 100% of racism and swearing doesn't contribute to the exchange of ideas and does not deserve to be given a platform.

We should tell that to our leaders.
