12. Parts of Europe have tolerated speech
England and France, usually.

Spain, recently.

Germany, not so much.

But it's their continent. I know they don't have anything like our Second Amendment, or the Fourth or Fifth. So why would they have the First?

However, it wasn't freedom of speech that gave rise to Hitler. I think it was more the economic conditions that resulted from the Treaty of Versailles.

If Turkey joins NATO, and the EU, as they've been attemting, will it be against the law to deny the Armenian Genocide? I think that was Hitler's model for thinking he could do a holocaust.
