Maybe I'm weird, but for me free speech comes out of the conundrum that the truth exists, but us humans are really bad at figuring out what the truth is. So we let people profess what they believe to be true, even if it's weird, rather than dictate what's true. So if we really believe in free speech then we believe people have the right to advocate for weird things, like the Pope being the universal leader, or whatever. Ironically, the one thing you can't advocate for under this philosophy is relativism. Is there is no truth, then freedom of speech would be bullshit. Although I fully admit that my view on freedom of speech is not the only one, nor is it the majority. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
