Is there freedom of speech here?Just two or three biased votes are enough to deprive a person of his right to express himself. Is this sector a breeding ground for regional discrimination, or will the empire have its final carnival?In fact, my question was not malicious. I was just curious about this new public opinion environment and asked some curious questions about your so-called freedom of speech.
- "Freedom of speech" in the legal sense only applies to government suppression of speech or communicative acts. The US, European, and most industrialized nation governments do not interfere with Politics Stack Exchange (PSE) postings one way or another — as opposed to the governments of China, Russia, and certain more dictatorial regimes — so that legal boundary is rarely if ever crossed.
- "Freedom of speech" in the colloquial sense has various meanings. If you mean it to suggest completely open discourse then no, PSE is not completely free. This is a moderated site, where questions and answers are vetted for quality, suitability, and various unpleasant tricks and tactics, all to keep the quality of the site above a certain benchmark. On the other hand, if you mean "Freedom of speech" to mean the ability to ask and answer any question so long as the text is respectfully written and responsibly constructed, then yes, PSE fosters free speech
Your linked question has some obvious weaknesses. First, it's factually inaccurate. The 'shadow of the US' did not hang over Russia's conflict with the Chechens or Ukraine; it had little to do with the Iran/Iraq war; it wasn't involved with the attacks on the Rohingya or the Uighurs; the Arab Spring caught it by surprise… The US has an oversized military posture since the end of the cold war, and that leads it (sometimes) to get involved with world conflicts, but by far it isn't generally the source of those conflicts.
Second, the framing of the question — perhaps innocently or accidentally — gives the impression that it isn't a question at all, but in fact an assertion: a polemic point that the community is challenged to confirm or deny. Those types of rhetorical questions in which a question format is used to promote a confrontational position are frowned on here. The site prefers honest questions seeking meaningful answers, not opinions tossed out to stir things up.
There might be an honest question lying somewhere within the apparent polemic; a hefty rewrite might bring that out and create a good question.
Your Q is rather vague
Since the end of Cold war, why is it that in every international conflict and regional turmoil, the shadow of the United States can always be found? What does this phenomenon mean? Can the world achieve lasting peace by solving this root cause?
What does that "shadow" mean exactly?
And your subsequent comments like
My point is that no major power is as eager for conflict as the United States right now.
appear to be from an alternate reality or some propaganda bubble.
Politics Stack Exchange is for objective questions about governments, policies and political processes.
It is not a place to advance opinions or debate, but rather for exchanging objective information about the policies, processes, and personalities that comprise the political arena. If you can't back it up, it's subjective.
And yeah, Qs that asked if the world would be a better place if some other particular country were to disappear would be likewise closed.
Also, rather than post dozens of comments here, on meta on what you meant by that, you should edit the question, which I suspect you still can do, because it was not self-deleted. After that, you can flag it for a mod to review and possibly undelete.
