Too Much Yakking, Already, Say Delegation
Some people say Erisianna's policy on free speech has gone too far.
1. "These days, anyone says whatever they want with no regard to what kind of dribble is coming out of their mouths!" says angry commuter Prudence Dodinas. "It's gone too far. We should go back to the good old days, when if someone started talking garbage, we'd smack them one."
2. "We need more free speech, not less," argues civil rights campaigner Roger Fellow. "Free speech allows ideas to be explored, challenged, and discussed in a productive, open forum. It teaches our kids to be critical thinkers. And dirty words, of course, but that's just the price you pay."
3. "The right to free speech is a central tenet of our system of democracy," says religious leader Sue-Ann Jong-Il. "But surely the right to not have your religious beliefs mocked by others is worth something, too? We mustn't put up with intolerance!"
