We have freedom of speech not because we agree with everything that is said, but because we would like to speak when others do not necessarily agree with us. We have freedom of religion not because we believe all religions are equally valid, but because we wish to worship or refrain from worship as we choose. Freedom of speech should not come with the disclaimer that “anything you say can be held against you in a court of law.”

Capital Freedom. Good blog, apparently written by Portia Rossi's prettier sister.

I wish what she said were true.

My understanding is that free speech means "no prior restraint". It does not protect you legally against the consequences of your speech if those consequences are harmful. Vnjagvet can elaborate on this I'm sure.
