Make no laws whatever concerning speech

"Make no laws whatever concerning speech, and speech will be free; so soon as you make a declaration on paper that speech shall be free, you will have a hundred lawyers proving that “freedom does not mean abuse, nor liberty license,” and they will define freedom out of existence." ~ Voltarine de Cleyre

"To silence criticism is to silence freedom." Excellent!! The original intent of "Freedom of Speech" was to prohibit government from silencing criticism of it. The original intent was not so individuals could use vile, offensive language in public.
