We pay a price for everything, and the price we pay to live in a free society is toleration. That means we have to tolerate the things we don’t like, not just the ones we do. Freedom of speech is not freedom for the thought you love; it’s freedom for the thought you hate the most. When cartoonists like Gary Trudeau, and cartoons like Doonesbury, lampoon politicians, they often inflict emotional distress. That’s when defending freedom of speech is most important—when it is offensive. If you’re not going to offend anyone, you don’t need the protection of the First Amendment.
