Actually, freedom of speech has ALWAYS meant the freedom to speak one's mind without fearing the 'consequences' of violence or intimidation that we see the bullies on the left practicing in our day. A basic principle of all free societies is : "I disagree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it." In healthy free and open societies this principle is observed at all levels of discourse.
The dysfunction with the anti-free speech movement of the left is that by squelching expression of opposing views they are simultaneously destroying the opportunity to refute those views. When the left violently attacks, shouts down, or doxes, views that they oppose they are unwittingly strengthening and building support for those views in the eyes of a neutral public.
As a Bible believing born again Christian, a US citizen and
resident of of Greece I think this is wonderful. We need more
inclusion, not less. We need more viewpoints, not fewer. We want
to encourage expression, not squelch it. I'm proud to live in the
Town of Greece where the expression of diverse views are welcome.
