President Obama says EVERYONE has freedom of speech and should be able to criticize the government, practice their religion, and speak and think without hypocrisy. Education, criticizing government corruption, and eliminating hypocrisy are among the main purposes of our site, and we do it because God calls us to do it. He says education is the path to sustainable development, and education is the main purpose of this site. He says government officials should NOT be able to detain or punish people for doing this, which means they shouldn't be able to punish us for publishing information about their corruption. He says that if young people are deprived of these things, they lose hope.
Shutting down sedm would deprive people of internet access to free exchange of ideas he says is vital. The ONLY legal justification for shutting down or persecuting free speech is if it attempts to incite either VIOLENT or CRIMINAL or UNLAWFUL or INJURIOUS activity. Our Member Agreement, Form #01.001 EXPRESSLY AND SPECIFICALLY forbids all these types of uses of our speech and forbids these as a reason for reading our speech.
The ONLY reason to read or learn our materials is religious and spiritual, and not commercial, political, or financial.
