BTW, the democracy Westerners die to protect is no different from "government is my bitch".

This sounds like music to ears of general public, but it is the reason for the widespread debt issues in "free" world; it is the reason that long term planning is hardly possible for government in "free" world.

There is no free press.  Not really.

Freedom of speech is an individual right.

Freedom of speech is an individual right.

You can speak freely in your own bathroom, IN ANY COUNTRY.

See the real meaning of free speech? Free speech is not about if you can speak freely, it is about if your voices will get public attention, and that is where  free press and freedom of speech differ.
What is the point that you can speak freely but no one care?

If a journalist has an opinion on an issue, he can make public aware of it, especially those anchors, their opinions can shape how millions of people think. On the other hand, if you have an opinion, you can't make public listen to you unless media and journalists like it.

Seneca, how are you?

Likewise, free to believe is not about if you are free to believe, it is more about if an individual is free to control other people's mind.

How do you like it?
