Freedom of speech is very hard to define; everyone is okay with it – until someone says something that perhaps doesn’t quite fit. It’s important to be able to say what we want, worship how we want, have access to the information we want, go where we choose, live our lives in the way we want. If we agree with free speech have we got the right to prevent someone from saying things we know to be wrong?
I remember there was a book with the lines, that I can’t quote exactly and I can’t find online, so if you know them please put me straight:
“This is a free country, you can't stop me. This is a free country, I can try.”
