Free speech

When people say things that others do not want to hear, often the answer or solution of those who don't want to hear it is to curtail speech -- to silence the speaker. Curtailing free speech is not the answer. More speech is the answer, not no speech or less speech. Not just more speech, but better speech. Bad speech should be answered by better speech, not intimidating speech; by loving speech, not louder speech.
