- FREE SPEECH
- "Everybody is in favor of free speech.
Hardly a day passes without its being extolled,
but some people's idea of it is that
they are free to say what they like,
but if anyone says anything back,
that is an outrage."
Sir Winston Churchill
Speech, House of Commons, 1943

Of course there are places where the rulers extoll the virtues of free speech...as long as you don't say things we don't like...

Yes..I agree with Sir Winnie... gets tedious hearing people bleating interminabley and then getting entirely cross when others disagree.

Brava!!!....free speech is only that when we are ALL allowed to say what we believe. We may not agree with what is being said, but we should agree with their right to say it... *smiles and greetings blonderaven...* Hope all is well is your world..Thursday October 12, 2006 - 10:55am
