I agree on your German views, speech is way powerful. But Germany perhaps imposed it for leverage options, to show the new world they are working on being deserving. Having such rule against nazi speech vs their crimes in WW2 does justify their speech clamp in some shades.
Philippines can be frightening, last time i went bout a month after 9/11 i walked around local malls and talked to fully armed soldiers replacing the malls as security guards for the high alert was announced. Currently there are about 15 different factions ever bended in war against the government...why? cause we support US policy and democracy while the other party want to create an independent southern Phil Musilim state free from current regimes. when i was 12 they had 1 which was called "abusayaf" now they got about 20 scattering even into northern more advanced cities dwell. It can be a blood bath like Palestine and Israel, we have a share of suicide bombings, massacres, and kids as young as 5 -7 in the jungles convinced in blowing up gov tanks in real combat it gets buck wild , in the real ghettos guns are in use, but machetes are more common i never seen any one swinging with machetes here in SD ghetto really, it's like anime samurai wars in real life, seriously not for the faint of heart. LOL and some call Filipinos 'fobs" heheheh yeah come down and see how fobs battle :P
