Freedom of Speech Is at Risk

Filed under: Uncategorized — Keynes @ 9:58 pm

I came to the United States approximate eight months ago for two reasons, one is to study at the university in a qualified American higher education system, and the other is to become a person in the country that prioritizes individual freedoms. My understanding of the personal freedom is to do whatever someone wants to without interfering other’s right. I have thought that the States is one of the best places to learn the meaning of freedom and to apply it on daily not only because of the fact that the States was established on the spirit of liberty, but also because of the prevailed social consensus about freedom.

One’s life is a sum of his or her whole experiences. Studying and staying at this country would definitely be the most valuable for my entire life since I have been experiencing a lot of different social feature. Freedom of speech is a typical example of the differences. Although my home country constitutionally acquired the right at the same time of the nation’s foundation, the freedom stated on the constitution is currently at risk. The government of Korea is trying to restrict the freedom of assembly and the freedom of the press if those are against the action of the authority. However, the freedom of speech including the provisions at any stages is not inviolable human right.

I am going to talk about the details for two or more weeks.

  1. This is so interesting. Being from America, I don’t get to see things like this. It is crazy to think about the freedom of speech being restricted. I am so excited for the next weeks as I can learn more from you!
