In Part 2 of Episode 4 of Thunder & Lightening, the co-hosts discuss how speech should regulated on social media. Christoph notes that there is no such thing as absolute "Free Speech" in any country and there are always limitations to "Free Speech."
Christoph notes that there is no such thing as absolute "Free Speech" in any country and there are always limitations to "Free Speech" leading Angel to explain the second major exception to the First Amendment "Free Speech" protection in America. The second major exception any speech that incites violence. Christoph and Angel then differentiate what is considered "incitement of violence" and what is not considered "incitement of violence" in America.
The co-hosts discuss the perversion of "Free Speech" as a result of a Supreme Court decision called "Citizens United v. FEC" (2010), which many legal experts believe to be one of the worst Supreme Court decisions ever made. This Supreme Court decision has altered the meaning of "Free Speech" in America while ushering an era of unlimited money into politics.
Angel also talks about how Justice Brett Kavanaugh who was nominated by president Trump is currently transforming the Supreme Court and is causing supporters of "Roe v. Wade" (1973 ) to be concerned about the future of abortion in America.
