"If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear"

George Orwell

The prosecution - a political steamroller against freedom of expression?

The indictment against Kim Møller adds to the series of lawsuits for violating section § 264 d of the Penal Code, which are now being carried out against a number of Islam-critical participants in the public debate, with blogger Steen Raaschou and debater Jaleh Tavakoli as the most spectacular cases to date.

Hollywood exercises self-censorship so as not to offend China

Films such as Seven Years in Tibet from 1997 are critical of China and would not be able to be produced today, as China has gained decisive influence in the film market and has great influence upon which stories are being told.

There are no legislators or practitioners who have yet seriously challenged their power. Therefore, we must keep protesting loudly when the tech giants violate our constitutional right to speak out without being censored.

How militarized and guarded can a civil society be and still be called a democracy?

It has never been part of a free and open democracy that its citizens cannot move freely and that certain sections of the population must be protected from the violent attacks of other groups, and that central institutions must be guarded. It has never been a viable recipe for a well-functioning democracy
