How important is freedom of expression (free speech)?
Listen to the words of Benjamin Cardozo, Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court from 1932–38. He described freedom of expression as:
‘(T)he matrix, the indispensable condition, of nearly every other form of freedom’.

Yes indeed. Two things form the bedrock of any free society: freedom of expression and the rule of law. If you don’t have those things, you don’t have a free society.

Thank you for your comment. I missed it perhaps because it came in just before we got Covid here. Thankfully we are over it. I have read your interesting and carefully written article. Thank you.
