I believe…

Posted on 8 January 2015

I believe in freedom of speech.

I believe in being sensitive to how using that freedom can affect others.

I believe even those who aren’t sensitive to using that freedom should be allowed to speak.

I believe we should be allowed to ignore them.

I believe we should be allowed to condemn them.

I believe it is tough to agree with freedom of speech when it results in terrible things being said.

I believe there is real danger in allowing terrible things to be said.

I believe words can bring us together, skewer hypocrisy, and be a beacon of freedom.

I believe words can tear us apart, incite atrocities, and feed hatred.

I believe it’s all pretty complicated.

I believe in freedom of speech.
