How far should freedom of expression go
Where is the line between freedom of expression and discrimination?
Freedom of expression is an important human right. However, this also applies to the right not to be discriminated against. Nobody wants to be disadvantaged or marginalized because he or she has a certain origin, skin color or religion. The ban on discrimination is also at the core of human rights.
Now what if you discriminate against someone by making a certain statement in public? You can say anything, but where is the line between freedom of expression and the ban on discrimination in this case?
In general, there are some restrictions on freedom of expression. For example, one cannot simply reveal company secrets (such as customer data or production processes) or a government military plan. And in times when a state of emergency has been declared or war is raging, the government can restrict the freedom of expression of the population.
You shouldn't denigrate other people and spread lies about them. And one must not incite violence, discrimination or murder. This is - in most countries - a criminal offense. So it can happen that a judge convicts a person on the fact that he has called for discrimination.
Although the line between discrimination and freedom of expression cannot always be clearly defined, there are guidelines and agreements that help to draw this line.
