Summary/Abstract: The aim of this article is to present what freedom of speech on the web really is. Freedom, to which each of us has a right, but which is increasingly restricted by the growing manifestations of hate speech, xenophobia and racism. Freedom of speech is the right to publicly express one’s thoughts and beliefs, nowadays considered as a standard among the norms of civilization. Today, however, we are increasingly confronted with limitations. In this article I analyse the manifestations of hatred on the Internet, its causes, which are a direct blockade of freedom of speech in the online world.
