Check Your Free Speech Rights

We’re going to assume you’ve heard all of those clichés. How many of them have you actually used to justify telling someone not to say something? Did you really need to say that, or was it just an attempt to keep someone from saying something that was uncomfortable for you?

Free speech isn’t easy to maintain in society, because it demands that we stand to protect the ability of people we disagree with to also speak freely. Are you doing that, or are you attempting to shut down dissenting voices?
