What are your political freedoms like?
Do you have freedom of speech, and if so to what degree?
Are their laws that limit your "rights?"

We can't take advantage of it by protesting "God Hates Fags" everyday, anywhere.
Never imagine yourself not to be otherwise than what it might appear to others that what you were or might have been was not otherwise than what you had been would have appeared to them to be otherwise

It's pretty free if you live in the north. In the west you'll get arrested for your different political opinions (england), religion (france, belgium). In the east you'll get arrested for anything (russia).

Pretty decent. Right wing parties are being bullied in Sweden which I find a bit pathetic, not that I associate myself anywhere close with them but it's an obvious blow on democracy when people with far right wing opinions are being fired, denied work or just in general when media actually bullies them to silence instead of taking the debate with constructive arguments. And the other parties avoid the discussion with them in any way which I believe is only pouring oil on the fire and allows the far right wing parties to use the "everyone hates us, everyone is denying the truth" as an argument. If the discussion had been taken from the start I doubt Sverigedemokraterna would be even close to the 6-8 % they have now. Which is sad, because their politics and rhetoric is rather void and onesided.

Also, you can't question the immigration problem in Sweden. That's racist even though it's obvious it's become a problem. That's a bit of a bummer as I find it would be a lot more constructive and succesful to actually realise the problems and start from the foundation and do something about it instead of just looking the other way.

Immigrants are being placed into already crime-ridden parts of specific cities and are expected to fit in.

inb4 I'm called a racist now.

Well to be fair:

http://www.thejournal.ie/12-year-old-girl-sues-school-over-facebook-password-380680-Mar2012/

And I heard a story a while back where an Irish guy was going to America for a short holiday of drinking and fun. He then tweeted something along the lines of "I'm going over to destroy America!" which is Irish slang for I'm going over to party in America. He was subsequently stopped at emigration and made go home because of the tweet.

The internet is getting ridiculous now, it seems that we have less rights and protection on the internet than in the "real" world.

I feel like if these things were said in person instead of through a keyboard no actions would have been taken. But since it's on the internet it's a major offence?

No.

since it's on the internet it means more people are able to access it.

Has it worked? Is there less racial hatred?

Or has it just been driven underground, where it can feed and foment, eventually erupting into unexpected incidents of violence?

The way to combat hate speech isn't censorship, it's superior speech. I've long maintained that if one can't provide a superior alternative and argument against a racist assclown, it's time to rethink your approach...

I suggest you are from Northern America by the quality of the questions and the lack of knowledge. That question sounds very stupid in my ears. Are you serious? I also live in Northern Europe and this place is more "free" and democratic than USA will ever be.

TS asked a genuine question. I agree that most Americans are pretty ignorant, and I am American. However, I've had the experience of living in Europe. I've been exposed to an outside view. Most Americans have not. We are brought up to believe that we are the best country in the world, and no one can do shit to us, blah blah blah. And most people never travel outside the USA to see it from a different angle.
You shouldn't go on insulting someone because they don't know something. Enlighten them, instead of making yourself look like an ass.

Europe isn't a country so it depends where you are.

In England you can say what you want to a degree unless your political stance is offensive, the problem comes when you try an protest we don't appreciate that.
