Freedom of speech refers to the basic right of citizens to freely express their opinions and listen to the opinions expressed by others according to their own wishes, but the personal rights and personal dignity of the participants must be guaranteed. Freedom of speech is a basic human right, and it has always been advertised as one of the most direct and external manifestations of human rights. In today's technological background, computer networks have become a major platform for citizens to exercise their freedom of speech. In order to better protect and restrict the freedom of speech on the Internet, it is necessary to review existing laws and regulations, check for omissions and keep up with the times, better protect citizens' democratic rights and maintain social order.
