On this day:

Holocaust, Cartoons & Free Speech

An interesting story in news is of British historian David Irvine who has been sentenced to three years in jail by an Austrian court for denying the holocaust. Denying the Nazi genocide in Austria is a crime which is punishable by up to 10 years in prison. At the same time, many newspapers and political parties have been defending the right of people to satirize and publish any cartoons they want.
Huh? Freedom of Speech.

freedom of speech always comes with a price nowadays but one must always be understanding and considerate of others regardless of what the circumstances.

one should never abuse the freedom of speech and should be extra careful and responsible when it comes to anything but there should also be some room to manouver given by the powers that be.

all that is needed is some understanding and common sense...try to look at the good side more than the bad and the world will hopefully be a better place...
