Freedom of Speech

19 Feb

“[I was furious] when a young customer waved that same three-finger salute. . . In my view it was like giving the ‘Heil Hitler’ sign to a Jewish Auschwitz survivor. . . My college buddies in America argued that everyone was free to express their beliefs without consequences.  But they had not been the victims of an ethnic-cleansing campaign by vicious racists who were barely punished. . .” – Kenan Trebincevic, The Bosnia List, p. 10.



I do not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it. #Voltaire #JeSuisCharlie

Richard Dawkins on freedom of speech and religious people disguising their hate speech as freedom of religion.

Tumblr- I really hate when think that "freedom of speech" means "I can be as rude as I want and you're not allowed to get mad."

Censorship is instated in Fahrenheit 451 to protect the feelings of the offended. The ideas of diversity and challenging previously established principles is a means to prevent 'harsh feelings'. In this case, the offended people are not in the right. The actions taken upon those who caused them to feel such a way are unacceptable.

There is a difference between 'freedom of speech' and insulting others!
