Musk: ‘A Good Sign as to Whether There Is Free Speech: Is Someone You Don’t Like Allowed to Say Something You Don’t Like?’

‘If that is the case, then we have free speech’
By Grabien Staff


MUSK: "I’m not saying that I have all the answers here, but I do think that we want to be just very reluctant to delete things and have — just be very cautious with permanent bans. You know, timeouts, I think, are better than sort of permanent bans and — but just in general, like it said, it won’t be perfect, but I think we wanted to really have like the perception and reality that speech is as free and reasonably possible, and a good sign as to whether there is free speech is, is someone you don’t like allowed to say something you don't like? And if that is the case, then we have free speech. And it’s damn annoying when someone you don’t like says something you don’t like. That is a sign of a healthy, functioning free speech situation."
