abstract freedom

Excerpt from the book 'Roving Mind' by Isaac Asimov

It takes a calm sense of security to be willing to let each person have his say in speaking and writing, regardless of the content thereof. The security may arise out of the conviction that in the free conflict of ideas, truth and sanity will prevail, even if that takes a little time, or out of an abstract devotion to free thought, whatever the outcome.

And we think we have freedom of expression but we still draw our own limits.

Good one :) And true, there have been a number of times, i edited few parts.

Try to be as expressive as possible though.
Honesty is the only virtue and the only vice i possess.
