It is eroding due to liberalism (leftism).
the hate speech laws apply to incitements to violence.
the laws certainly apply to prevent discrimination.

its not eroding due to liberalism under our conservative right wing government. we had a federal government minister stand up in parliament recently and insist australia must continue to protect "the right to be a bigot".

The laws against free speech seem to be mostly at the state level. For example:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-D...ation_Act_1977

So basically one can't "vilify" any group in New South Wales. That is no free speech.

Hate speech laws are acceptable and there should be more of them. State approved speech is sensible and should be the next step
