The problem of free speech vs. political correctness is not framed correctly, I am pretty sure about that. The real problem is the algorithmic approach that does not solve shit.
In real human life, for every word, there is context. You don’t talk to a strong person like you talk to a weak person. You don’t talk to a liberal like you talk to a conservative. You don’t talk to an adult like you talk to a child, and all of it is valid. Without context, without aliveness that is LOVING, subjective and not mathematical, conclusions are meaningless and useless.
Our civilization has been on a quest to abstract and streamline everything, and so far, life has been proving that it is not possible as people are gradually going insane.
