While I still disagree with Charles that "talk causes action," sometimes talk is not really just talk but a kind of action in itself and can be prohibited when that action is harmful, such as intimidation. Using words for a purpose other than expression is profanity. This is the only true meaning of "profanity." When the terms are defined correctly, "speech" is protected, "profanity" is not.


CB: When fascistic racists make a speech at a rally or to any audience , their purpose is to persuade the audience to act according to what they are saying, n'est-ce pas ?
