#204B LIMITS AND ETHICS 

I support limiting freedom of speech to prohibit speech that is hateful or 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 my immediate family, village, urban water cycle, natural ecosystem, etc. —and limit my impacts based on ethical, scientific, and other considerations. I believe we live on a small planet and that our collective actions increasingly make our planetary home unlivable. Going elsewhere in space to live is a fantasy: If we ruin Earth, we have no viable Plan B.
