I'm sorry but I don't think I can put any input on this. As a European, I don't speak freedom(simplified).

I'm all for allowing Iran to build nuclear based technology, not nuclear weapons though. There's enough nuclear weapons in the world but if they truly just want nuclear power and other civil applications for that type of technology then let them go ahead. It'll probably help boost the quality of life over there. Besides that, I'm generally pro-nuclear power anyway.

If DLCs are done correctly, like in the Elder Scrolls Series (best example being the Shivering Isles), then I'm all for it as its extra content. However, when you pay to unlock content that's already in the base game, such as Sparta, Athens and Epirus in Rome 2, then its a pretty nasty method of conducting business. Still, some implementation of DLC into the main game (as was done with the Fallout New Vegas DLCs) can work, but again its about doing it correctly.

I think censorship is good to an extent. For example, censorship of child porn or blurring out certain images on the news in case children are watching. However, censorship of unpopular opinions is silly and wrong in an area that has freedom of speech even if those opinions are hate filled or incorrect. I think Evelyn Beatrice Hall says it best 'I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it'. That's probably my favourite quote ever and sums up my attitude to free speech.

Communism is beautiful in theory. However its execution has been and is less than desirable. In a perfect world, Communism would be far better in terms of ease of application. However, due to the nature of humans and society, too many people would exploit the system or form harsh dictatorships in which some people are more equal than others. Because of this, I'm a supporter of Capitalism. I would say, however, that certain elements of Communism/Socialism, such as universal healthcare, are most definitely positive and can and should be implemented in Capitalist nations.

Referring to the picture; I was an atheist before I'd even heard of Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens and the 'Youtube Greats' of the Amazing Atheist and Thunderf00t. The first I've heard of Sam Harris and Daniel Dennett is right now. I don't know if that's the case for every atheist, but definitely for me.

Colonise the Moon and Mars. Assist healthcare in third world countries to remove the need to have lots of children to guarantee that at least one survives. Use nuclear power along with solar power.

If all else fails?
Push the reset errr.... I mean nuclear war buttons as we fight over the last resources of our planet. Call me a cynic but things are going to get extremely worse or extremely better in the near future. I doubt that we'll experience an average or slight improvement or worsening.

On that we can agree. Religious based hate speech is, although not race driven, a low thing to comment about.

It does. You said, and I quote, 'It's their belief that religion is wrong and belief in God is wrong. They persecute on that basis.' I've just addressed that issue by saying, 'Actually, you're wrong, they targeted religion because it was a threat to the stranglehold of their dictatorship.'
