    1. Το ότι αποτελούν αντικείμενο ρύθμισης δεν είναι κάποια ριζοσπαστική θέση, είναι η θέση που έχει εκφράσει στο κογκρέσο των ΗΠΑ ο ιδρυτής  και ιδιοκτήτης του Fb Mark Zuckerberg: «Η θέση μου δεν είναι ότι δεν πρέπει να υπάρχει ρύθμιση. Πιστεύω ότι το πραγματικό ερώτημα, καθώς το διαδίκτυο γίνεται ολοένα και πιο σημαντικό για τις ζωές των ανθρώπων, είναι ποιος είναι ο σωστός τρόπος ρύθμισης, και όχι αν είναι απαραίτητο να υπάρχει ρύθμιση»

    1. In those wretched countries where a man cannot call his tongue his own, he can scarce call anything his own. Whoever would overthrow the liberty of a nation must begin by subduing the freeness of speech ... Without freedom of thought there can be no such thing as wisdom, and no such thing as public liberty without freedom of speech, which is the right of every man ...

      It’s interesting to see this being debated today with the fight over freedom of speech in social media. You could argue that social media is today’s version of the earlier pamphlets.

    1. Defamation law walks a fine line between the right to freedom of speech and the right of a person to avoid defamation. On one hand, a reasonable person should have free speech to talk about their experiences in a truthful manner without fear of a lawsuit if they say something mean, but true, about someone else. On the other hand, people have a right to not have false statements made that will damage their reputation.

    1. They can spew hate amongst themselves for eternity, but without amplification it won’t thrive.

      This is a key point. Social media and the way it amplifies almost anything for the benefit of clicks towards advertising is one of its most toxic features. Too often the extreme voice draws the most attention instead of being moderated down by more civil and moderate society.

    1. "The ideas of the First Amendment are not designed to deal with what it took to make the materials [of pornography.]" [5:56-5:59]

    2. "The 'freely choosing women'... As if you've raised a freely choosing black person [who decides to 'freely choose'] to clean toilets. That's the equivalent. You call that freedom. It's called freedom when women choose to do it and it's sex because people believe that sex is free. However, pornography is selling yourself for sex. The idea of money is supposed to make it free. Usually, when people have sex with another person and choose to do it, they're not being paid, it's free because you're not being paid. In other words, this is an arm of prostitution." [NOT VERBATIM] [3:53-4:31]
