Free Speech on the Internet
With the popularization of the Internet, it has become a common phenomenon that people express their ideas freely on the Internet. However, there are different voices on whether free speech should be advocated on the Internet.
Some people agree that everyone should be allowed to share his or her ideas freely on the Internet. They say that since we live in a democratic country, we all have the right to free speech.
However, other people argue that restrictions should be imposed on the expressions on the Internet, for there have been many remarks that spread false information and messages of violence, which has a bad influence on teenagers.
In my opinion, people should be endowed with the right to speak freely on the Internet as long as we improve our moral consciousness. Internet is a good medium for us to share our opinions, but we should not transmit illegal or harmful information. Everyone has the duty to keep our network clean, then we’ll be able to enjoy the convenience the Internet has brought us.
