Yes - the government interferes too much- we should be free to live as we wish.

No - the only way we can ensure a secure, non-violent society is to give up some of our freedoms.

50%

To an extent - we should be free but not at the risk of harming other people.

Maybe - but it's complicated now that we share more information online.

    Since humans desire safety, I believe that a free society will naturally be a safe society.

    It's all about balance, we should be able to think and feel and say what we want but not if it hurts someone else

    Feeling safe is important in today's modern world, but I do think we need freedom of speech as everyone's entitled to their own opinions
