Freedom of speech, action are different things

British Prime Minister David Cameron is presently taking actions designed to shut down the freedom of those committing horrifically unacceptable atrocities dealing with child pornography and sexual violence against women.

For this he should be unquestionably commended. However, those furthering the cause of freedom of speech have a problem. They do not see the difference between freedom of speech and freedom of action.

The freedom of speech is one thing and freedom of action is quite another. And British Prime Minister David Cameron is proving that point.

The freedom of speech argument simply has no place in the debate. It should be noted also that the freedom of speech enthusiasts offer no answer to the problem and are interfering with someone who is seeking an answer.
