Yttrandefrihet och frihet i sig

A.C. Grayling var en av huvudtalarna vid World Humanist Congress i Oxford i augusti. Hans tal handlade om yttrandefrihet, ett av kongressens teman, och dess värde.
"Freedom of expression is the route by which human intelligence can seek the best and do the best in our world." 
"[I agree with] the lack of protection for expression that constitutes hate speech [...] I also agree that there might be very inflammable circumstances in a society, in a world, where for a specific reason and a limited amout of time we might be asked to reserve our opions, for a while. But any blanket censorship of expression is inimical to human flourshing overall and to the possibility of good and progressive society."
