Freedom of speech meaning...
If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.
I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.
The right to free speech and the unrealistic expectation to never be offended can not coexist.
At no time is freedom of speech more precious than when a man hits his thumb with a hammer.
Freedom of speech means freedom for those who you despise, and freedom to express the most despicable views. It also means that the government cannot pick and choose which expressions to authorize and which to prevent.
Ignorant free speech often works against the speaker. That is one of several reasons why it must be given rein instead of suppressed.
Freedom of speech includes the freedom to offend people.
There is a fine line between free speech and hate speech. Free speech encourages debate whereas hate speech incites violence.
Freedom of speech means that you shall not do something to people either for the views they have, or the views they express, or the words they speak or write.
