Yes, and I haven't been trying to spread, or force, those views lately. Only when it had come up in the past. I'm perfectly fine with others have read them and leaving it at that so I can just tinker on my kits with my views in the corner over there.. so long as the US-Japan alliance us upheld.
One could not force others to agree with his views.
No, this is not about ethics, but about impossibility. Man is free, and is free to believe whatever he wants, be it true, be it false. Some men could be convinced to change their believings, but that is not a given. Anyway it is important to have freedom of speech.
But freedom of speech lives only as long as it is exercised. If not exercised, then the wrong ideas get accepted, and then bye bye freedom of speech. Freedom of speech exist as a gamble on the people to not give it up. Use it or lose it. Toleration of the wrong ideas is the same as not using it. So either that or make a safety net or a fail safe.
