The New York Times has an interesting article on hate speech:
Unlike Others, U.S. Defends Freedom to Offend in Speech
I think in this matter, the US is on the right track. There is no such thing
as an idea that is too dangerous to spoken. Living in a free society means
hearing many things you don't agree with. At least that way, you know who is
a fucking bigoted small-minded asshole who should be ignored. Without free
speech, it would be harder to know who these idiots are.
