Now since the bolded part is useless in your quote, read the passages right below it.
Stress, anxiety, and depression.
That's what the article is arguing on.
Your original claim was that PCs are currently expanding laws and increasing oppression.
They are expanding these laws, and the censorship is indeed increasing.
Furthermore, as I've already shown, authorities in major countries are already working to increase efforts.
Now, the claim is that they have been doing this for decades.
That's not a new claim.
The relevant laws today started in the early 2000s as shown a couple of pages ago, and the silencing and censorship as well.
The base claim is that it's increasing at a large scale recently, and it is.
You shifted this argument because I showed how they have not been doing anything recently.
Nothing of the argument was shifted, you're just going around in circles.
If you are discussing the UK article about all these people being investigated for online speech, then you are referring to an article that used the number of everyone being charged with that particular crime.
That particular crime does not distinguish between racism and other illegal uses of speech. So, the number cited does not show how many cases were due to bigotry.
Yea, here is the thing; You've repeatedly made this statement of "illegal uses of speech", and it still is a red herring, even after all these times you repeated it.
Simple, because if it was inciting violence, it is called as such and has its own stats; If it was targetted, then it is harassment and it also has its own stats; The only thing that these stats address are hate speech.
Likewise in the famous case of Mark Meechan, he was arrested and fined for offensive content, content that was not targetted at anyone and comedic in nature and intent, which means it also a hate speech case like many others.
In Germany on the other hand, the cases, as quoted, were everything between using hateful language, illegal symbols, hate speech, and inciting hate speech and violence, with the stated intent of the state to remove hateful content online.
I don't see how much more clear should it get.
