Your Voice Counts, The NS Feedback Series. Part 1: Comment from A. on “Neo-Sovereignism”

Comment from A. on “Neo-Sovereignism” – April 26, 2016:

A.: Just a question, the way some do press today purely to mock religions, how would the Paris attack fit in this? Because i actually feel for the muslims in that instance. Feels like there can’t be the one or the other. But if it worked it’s good. “In a neo-sovereign society freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of press, freedom of expression and freedom of determination are absolute and irrevocable rights.”

K.J for The NS: 1. “In a neo-sovereign society freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of press, freedom of expression and freedom of determination are absolute and irrevocable rights.” is exactly what it means, I assume that is clear.

A.: So just f#ck those ppl that get upset when we draw and insult their god/believe system?

K.J for The NS: 2. Those absolute and irrevocable rights are not related to the “Paris attack”, in that the Paris events are acts of war.

3. “f#ck those ppl that get upset when we draw and insult their god/believe system” … One’s opinion and expression should not be limited by law. If a non-muslim verbally attacks the religion of a muslim, or the other way around, that should not be a reason to put in a law to make such acts illegal and punishable. Indeed, the freedom of expression should be absolute. Hurting someone’s feelings in such a manner is not the business of a government.

4. The same goes for “neo-sovereignism”. It’s not because I get attacked and mocked and insulted that there should be a law to defend me. It is I who needs to engage in discussion and documenting what neo-sovereignism is, not what an opposition source claims it is.
