    The 'marketplace of ideas' is not a marketplace. It is a battlefield.

    No, LOVE is a battlefield. The marketplace of ideas is an ARENA.

    Someone on this thread said freedom of speech is either an absolute or non-existent (difficult to find as scrolling on a small phone).

    No one seemed to challenge this, so I'll add to it:

    There is no objective black hole where we can get our limits and responsibilities from. Where protection of speech ends is decided by those whose speech probably doesn't need protecting.

    Limits and responsibilities in regards to what opinions we can express are and will always be defined through a political lens.

    Bit tired when writing this but it seems to me that 'paradoxical' is not a bad word to describe limits and responsibilities on freedom of speech if a purpose is to protect dissenting voices.
