"Dissensus was a lot more Debate Club and a lot less Banter Club in those days." Mr Tea.
is the question whether it would be a good thing to pass the bill if it prevents a hard right government from gaining power, lesser of two evils?
i guess that there's no reason why that strategy shouldn't spectacularly backfire if it escalates the situation so that they pass the bill and then the right win anyway.
needless to say they should dump the bill
all the things in the al-jazeera piece seem fine to me. we wouldnt take issue with any of that would we?
Hate speech and ‘separatism’A new offence for online hate speech will make it possible to quickly detain a person who spreads personal information about public sector employees on social media with the intent to harm them, and will be punishable by up to three years’ imprisonment and a fine of 45,000 euros ($55,000).
The blocking or delisting of websites promoting hate speech will also be made easier and legal proceedings accelerated.
Under a so-called “separatism” offence, anyone found threatening, violating or intimidating an elected official or public sector employee will also face up to five years imprisonment and a fine of 75,000 euros ($91,000).
If the offence is committed by a foreigner, they could be banned from French territory.
