Internet and its effects on freedom of speech

Line: 38 to 37
 Given that the right to freedom of speech is rather vague and open to interpretation and the Internet is a free space involving various stakeholders, the solution should be contributed by every party. For example, the Court or the legislators may come up with a new law to further defines the scope of the right and exceptions to the right. The government should also develop a guideline on prohibited content and allow third-party intervention to ensure that its procedures are in accordance with the international standards. The tech companies should issue a clear guideline or reasons when censoring or banning content on their platform. The users should also be cautious when posting content online to ensure that the rights of others is not breached by the content. As the technology advances, it is important to establish a society where we are controlling the Internet to create a free and welcoming environment, not the other way around where the Internet leads the way freely.

This draft is entirely too general. The subject is unfocused: the literature in the area of "free expression and the Internet" is immense, but you refer to none of it. The digression on Thailand's lese-majeste statute, which has nothing to do with the Internet in particular, further diffuses focus.

The next draft should begin with a specific idea of your own, subtending a small enough arc that you can interact in a meaningful way with other sources of information and analysis. Those materials should then be used, after the introduction to your own idea, to show how you came by and support it, as well as your view of the primary objections that knowledgeable readers might entertain. Then you can have a real conclusion, from which the reader can carry further on her own.

You are entitled to restrict access to your paper if you want to. But we all derive immense benefit from reading one another's work, and I hope you won't feel the need unless the subject matter is personal and its disclosure would be harmful or undesirable. To restrict access to your paper simply delete the "#" character on the next two lines:
