“I may not agree with you, but I will defend to the death your right to make an ass of yourself.” -Oscar Wilde
Freedom of speech & expression is the foundation on which our society is built. It's how we challenge & reinvent ourselves as a species. It forces us to deal with inconvenient truths. It teaches us how to empathise. Oppressing it through censorship is criminal. Oppressing it through violence is utterly unforgivable.
RIP to all who lost their lives at Charlie Hebdo. Your pens were mightier than their guns. And they always will be.
