Should the USA emulate Hungary to help quarantine gossip and misinformation?

The Chicago Tribune – AP news article titled, Virus Used to Quell Dissent, reported:

The law sets up to five years imprisonment if convicted for spreading false information about the coronavirus pandemic………….

The Purpose of This Post

Is to discern the effects in the USA if this same law was enacted?

King Solomon

Without wood, a fire goes out; without gossip, a conflict cease. (Proverb 26:20)

What’s My Point?

Frankly, when I read this one sentence and considered the consequence of this law being enacted in the USA, all I could do is smile.

My point is to wonder how many people in the USA would wind up in jail if this law was enacted?

In My Opinion

If you ever experienced being deep in a wooded area, you would be able to relate the total silence that occurs in an area where there is a lot of wood growing around you instead of being used to spread the fire of gossip, lies, disinformation, etc. etc.

In other words, if this law was enforced in the USA, the silence would be deafening in my opinion.

You Decide

If after reading, did you smile have to smile too when you discerned how much gossip etc. is sadly being spread in the news in the USA?

Would teaching Bible verses about gossip help quarantine misinformation being spread in the USA?
