“If you believe in freedom of speech, you believe in freedom of speech for views you don’t like. Goebbels was in favour of freedom of speech for views he liked. So was Stalin. If you’re in favour of freedom of speech, that means you’re in favour of freedom of speech precisely for views you despise.”

    He’s right…in principle. But it’s easy for him to say–all the “best people” like what he says; let him try speaking out against the shibboleths of the Left.
