Perhaps you could give some contexts in which the answer is different?

You have clearly forgotton the context, as you are too busy being inane.

Here's a reminder:

why not? Why bother splitting hairs? - if it *DOES* lead to violence, then it is inciting violence - no?


Quote:
For want of a nail.


up to this point we were having an adult discussion. From here though you went into pre-school mode - simply repeating the nail analogy that I made perfectly clear that I did not understand. Despite repeated pleas to explain it within the above context of free speech and incitement, you decided to play stupid pre-school games.

But since you ask, that is the context.

The problem for me FD is that you never adequately explained the difference between "hate speech that leads to violence" and "inciting violence" - even though you insist the two are different. Either way, you do seem to accept that free speech can indeed result in violence - hence your ham-fisted attempt at using the nail analogy as a way of warning against blaming free speech for any negative consequences that may result.

But that is not what my question is about. I am not attempting to de-legitimize the principle of free speech. The question is about your position FD - because as it currently stands, it is contradictory and nonsensical: that free speech cannot be incitement to violence, yet on the same token, it can lead to violence. Please square that circle for me. If a public figure calls on cartoonists to be killed - and lo and behold, the next day a whole bunch of cartoonists are killed, the killers citing their inspiration from the speech of said public figure. Apparently that is not incitement by your definition - correct? You would just dismiss this as a legitimate right to argue the case for capital punishment for cartoonists. And yet it very clearly "incited" people to act upon what he said - whether he meant for that to happen or not.

You can start by explaining where the line between incitement and free speech exists. Because I do accept that it is possible for (legitimate) speech to be misconstrued and abused, and where any violence that ensues should not be understood as incitement. Yet, you surely cannot disagree that there is such a thing as 'incitement' that is outside the bounds of 'fire in the theatre' type speech that you seem to restrict it to. But this does, unfortunately for you, mean that you would need to walk back on your previous claim that "hate speech that leads to violence" cannot be 'incitement to violence'

Because you keep thinking of it as an analogy and trying to second guess where your own thoughts will lead you if you give an honest answer. Think of it instead as an apprentice who erred in making a nail, one later consequence of which was the loss of a kingdom. I am happy to copy and paste the whole proverb if it helps.

Should the apprentice who erred in making the nail be held liable for the loss of the kingdom?

the apprentice and the nail are obviously analogies FD.

You wouldn't have brought it up if they weren't.

Lets try a different tact, shall we? What does it mean if I answer "yes" and what does it mean if I answer "no" - in relation to my actual question?

But feel free to just repeat and/or copy and paste the analogy again if you really are determined not to have an adult conversation.

One would suggest you don't get the principle, one would suggest you do.

Why are you afraid to answer the question?

I can't answer the question FD, because I don't understand it. I've only said that about 10 times already.

You've also forgotton whatever point it was you were trying to make. I went to the trouble of explaining that to you - pointing out what I was actually asking, and how you are singularly failed to answer. For reference, this was my latest effort:

You understand the question just fine. The only thing you are getting hung up on is what either of us might say after you answer it.

who is the nail in your analogy FD? Who is the apprentice? I'll give you a hint - its got something to do with hate speech and incitement to violence, and your contradictory position on it. A position I have gone to great pains to spell out to you.

And before you say it - yes it is an analogy.

Here's how I interpret the analogy:

Should the apprentice who erred in making the nail be held liable for the loss of the kingdom? = should the necessary right of free speech be held liable for bad things that might happen because of it - like violence?

Just a simple confirmation that this is the analogy you meant would be a great start - or maybe I am getting something wrong? Unfortunately though, the problem with using this analogy as your answer to my question - is that it doesn't actually answer my question - as I have already pointed out in great detail - ad-infinitum.

The Best Way to Combat Islamophobia?

Easy - just ask Muslims to redact all the parts of their Koran which promote violence.

You know -
a big black texter mark over all those violent passages.

gandalf,

Q.
Why don't moslems like living in Syria ?


...in Lebanon ?

...in Somalia ?

...in Iraq ?

...in Egypt ?

...in Tunisia ?

...in Libya ?

...in Pakistan ?

...and on, and on.


It isn't a trick question.

But has it got something to do with the fact the >> wherever << followers of ISLAM live, every individual moslem, [as child] reads his Koran and the Hadith [studies, ISLAMIC religious doctrine], and by the time that adulthood comes upon him,
this young person has determined that only his own understanding of Allah's will, can be the correct one ?
....i.e. from his mothers knee, he has read the Koran, to better understand Allah's will.

And so, the moslem decides that, to indeed be a good moslem, his obligation in life, is to obey Allah.

And he knows what Allah commands, regarding the correct way of the promotion of Allah's perfect religion.



.



THE HADITH....

"...the Prophet said, 'If somebody (a Muslim) discards his religion, kill him."
- DEAD.
hadithsunnah/bukhari/ #004.052.260


.


ISLAMIC LAW TEXT....


"Ibn 'Umar related that the Messenger of Allah, upon whom be peace, said, "I have been ordered to kill the people until they testify that there is no god except Allah, and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and they establish prayer and pay the zakah. If they do that, their blood and wealth are protected from me save by the rights of Islam. Their reckoning will be with Allah." (Related by al-Bukhari and Muslim.) "
fiqhussunnah/fus1_06







EXAMPLE, CONSEQUENCE; of young formative minds following [being exposed to] ISLAMIC 'religious doctrine'.

......


WE SEE, EVIDENCE, THAT IN AUSTRALIA, MOSLEM CHILDREN, IN MANY MOSLEM HOMES, ARE BEING TAUGHT
'HOW TO PRACTICE ISLAM',
AND FROM CHILDHOOD, ARE BEING URGED TO DEVELOP THE DESIRE TO BECOME AN ISLAMIC MARTYR ------ >



And of course, moslems in Australia, will vehemently reject such an accusation,
.....coming from a person, another Australian, who is not a follower of ISLAM.

But can such 'rejections', from the local moslem community be sustained ?



------ >


15-year-old gunman, Farhad Khalil Mohammad Jabar
.....follower of ISLAM.


n.b.
Farhad Khalil Mohammad Jabar went to a meeting at his local mosque, to be given the pistol there.

Farhad Khalil Mohammad Jabar outside Parramatta police headquarters


QUESTION;
What 'set off' Farhad Khalil Mohammad Jabar on that fateful day, to decide to murder Australian Curtis Cheng in Parramatta, NSW ???

ANSWER;
ONLY ALLAH KNOWS!



n.b.
ISLAMIC culture encouraged Farhad Khalil Mohammad Jabar, to murder Australian Curtis Cheng.




Farhad Khalil Mohammad Jabar was inspired by ISLAM's imperative, which urged him TO KILL THE ENEMIES OF ALLAH.

The best way is by showing that there is absolutely nothing wrong with fearing and opposing Islam.

That way the weaselly misnomer "Islamophobia" is defeated.

Q.
So why are we, as a society, so, so afraid, to do so ???

So afraid, to contradict and disagree with   the HIVE MIND,   the WOKE,   the PC majority.




ISLAM ?

Human history itself, attests that ISLAM is a philosophy which has encouraged and condoned the oppression and murder of millions, and millions of human beings, who came into contact with the followers of ISLAM.

Dear Yadda,
Today's word is - redundancy.
https://grammarist.com/redundancies/

Also, it was Evelyn Waugh, I think, who said (I quote from memory), 'a bore is someone who leaves out no detail'.
Worth studying.
