kerravonsen: The words of Martin Niemoller, about Nazi Germany. (first-they-came)
[personal profile] kerravonsen
One does not truly believe in freedom of speech until one defends the right of someone else to be Wrong In Public.

It's easy to defend the rights of someone you agree with. It's not so easy to defend the rights of someone who is "mistaken at the top of their voice".

(This post brought to you courtesy of an argument I had with someone on a completely different topic.)

Totally agree. I sometimes find it hard to actually do, but when I can, I try.

Now if only everyone else did the same there would be far fewer flame wars.
