Salman Rushdie On Charlie Hebdo: Free Speech Is Absolute

Salman Rushdie On Charlie Hebdo: Free Speech Is Absolute – http://huff.to/1IBTMMb

What’s needed is proportionality in response.

As in, think like Moses. An eye for an eye is proportionate, imprisonment for speech is not.

We should disapprove of hateful speech but again the response should be proportionate.  So for instance if someone says something clueless but is not arguing for discrimination he should not receive discrimination, for instance by losing employment.
