I often hear various individuals protesting against the right to free speech. I believe the freedom of speech to be the most significant right we possess. Were it not for the right to express ourselves through writing and vocalization we would be unable to recognize the blatant ignorance of others. If people insist on living in stupidity, we should at the very least provide them a pulpit from which to display it. In this respect we gain priceless knowledge concerning who to avoid at all costs.
