Freedom of speech has been in the news again this week as the Government gets ready to do something about the odious section 18c.
A couple of excellent quotes …
First, any commitment to free speech is a commitment to allowing people to say and write things you may not like, that you may detest, that you may disagree with and find offensive. If the words spoken are words we all agree with and find congenial, then there is no need for any commitment to free speech… Professor James Allan.
The Nazis did not flourish because they had too much free speech. They flourished because their critics had none. Andrew Bolt.
