Question Mark: Free Speech

In light of the attacks on Charlie Hebdo in Paris, what are your thoughts on free speech? Should speech or expression be restricted at all? If so, in what cases?

Thank you for this very important question. I do not support restrictions on speech or expression. I agree with the founders of this country, who believed that democracy requires free speech to be sustained. A free ranging dialogue is even more important for those of us who work as educators. An uninhibited exchange of ideas is at the core of learning.
