Above any others, speech and communication need to be
the last bastion of absolute freedom. It is through
speech or communication in general that the ills of
society are confronted; and some of them even manage
to be fixed every great once in a while. Speech, in my
opinion, should never be forcefully and irreparably
constrained in any way. I won't be so dishonest as to
say that my feelings would never be hurt by anything
someone says. They could; but that's a sacrifice I'll
always be willing to make. What this world needs is a
tad more rationality in all directions.

Best Wishes,

Jeffrey Herrlich
