The whole point of free speech is not to make ideas exempt from criticism but to expose them to it.

My sentiments exactly
Society in every state is a blessing, but government even in its best state is but a necessary evil; in its worst state an intolerable one; for when we suffer, or are exposed to the same miseries by a government, which we might expect in a country without government, our calamity is heightened by reflecting that we furnish the means by which we suffer. --Thomas Paine
