You do realize, do you not, that governments are comprised of human beings, and that human beings—far more often than not—will utilize, for their own benefit, any power and/or authority which is entrusted to them?

So you do realize, do you not, that if you give those in government the power and authority to silence speech, then they will use that power and authority to silence speech that they don’t like—not necessarily speech that you don’t like?

And you do realize, do you not, that the speech that they don’t like, is any speech which protects the rights, liberty, property, and wealth of the people—from them?

That being the case, then you do realize, do you not, that the loss of free speech in a once-free society paves the way for the loss of all other rights and liberty for the people, resulting in an authoritarian police state, aka tyranny?

You do realize this, do you not?
