FREEDOM FROM LIMITS

I value individual freedom and don’t like regulations that restrict it.  Regarding freedom of speech, the only limitation on it I accept is on speech urging immediate hurtful action.  If my actions don't directly bother or harm other human beings—or negatively impact their property—I believe I'm free to do whatever I want with my body, my machines or my property —including land I own. I don't think we live on a small planet since it's big enough to seem mostly devoid of human presence over vast areas. If we ever do run out of living space / resources on Earth, we'll simply go elsewhere in space for them.

LIMITS AND ETHICS
I support common sense regulations that protect people and the environment. I support limiting freedom of speech to prohibit speech that is clearly hateful / hurtful to society—including knowingly spreading false information. Rather than acting as I please, I know I must respect the bigger whole I’m part of—whether it's family, village, ecosystem, etc. —and limit my impacts based on ethical, scientific, and other considerations. I believe we live on a small planet and increasingly our collective actions threaten our planetary home. Going elsewhere in space to live is a fantasy: If we ruin Earth, we have no viable Plan B.
