Freedom of speech.

firstamendment_0

I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it. — Evelyn Beatrice Hall, 1906

I was reminded of this quote today. While catching up on reading comments, I saw one from someone who absolutely hates this blog, and proceeded to tell me all the things they hated about it. Since it attacked the content and not me personally, I decided to approve the comment, even though I had nothing to say in response to it and was not going to “Like” it.

As a blogger, it’s unrealistic to expect I’m not going to have haters.  Fortunately, there haven’t been too many of them.

We are not all going to agree. It would be a boring world if we all did. We are all so diverse and that’s a beautiful thing. As long as our differences don’t veer into hate speech or hate actions, freedom of speech is a beautiful thing.

  1. Whew! For a second there I thought you were saying you disagreed with my blog because I had one about freedom of speech (regarding J.K.Rowling) in my Soapbox blog. Well, we sure are living in exciting times.
