This is a big question and there are lots of ways of looking at it.
As Session 1 showed us, there is a debate about how far someone's "freedom of speech" should stretch. Remember, freedom of speech means the right that people have to share their opinions without being stopped or punished by law.
Should people be able to say whatever they want?
You might want to think about these questions to help you:
- What makes something OK or not OK to say? Would everyone agree?
- When you should be allowed to say what you think and when shouldn't you?
- Can something be wrong to say but not against the law to say it?
This can be a tricky topic to discuss so you might want to read our advice for students on discussions like this. Try to keep your answers based on the question and it's best to not include any inappropriate language or specific examples of offensive things people could say. But don't worry, everything gets read by someone on our team before it is published!
