The importance of free speech

Johann Hari gives an excellent lecture defending free speech.

There are so many wonderful points made in this video. I’m just going to highlight two of my favorites:

All people deserve respect, but not all ideas do.

Nothing worth saying is inoffensive to everyone. Nothing worth saying will fail to make you enemies. And nothing worth saying will not produce a confrontation.
