"Whether he went on with the diary, or whether he did not go on with it, made no difference. The Thought Police would get him just the same. He had committed---would still have committed, even if he had never set pen to paper---the essential crime that contained all others in itself. Thoughtcrime, they called it. Thoughtcrime was not a thing that could be concealed forever. You might dodge successfully for a while, even for years, but sooner or later they were bound to get you." [George Orwell, "1984"]|
Welcome back, George. Things are playing out as you predicted.
From the UK Met Police website, here is the latest official attempt to censor speech. It's actually more than that. Read carefully while pointing a fan at the screen to disperse the noxious fumes:
"If someone does something that isn't a criminal offence but the victim, or anyone else, believes it was motivated by prejudice or hate, we would class this as a 'hate incident'. Though what the perpetrator has done may not be against the law, their reasons for doing it are. This means it may be possible to charge them with an offence."
It---an action or statement---isn't a crime, but the perpetrator's reasons for "doing it" may spring from hatred---and then it turns into a crime.
