This is a typical example of reframing a problem in one side's
favourable terms. Freedom of expression is a fundamental freedom as
recognised by the United Nations, and is guaranteed by the highest
courts of any civilised society. Attacking one's freedom of expression
under whatever auspices makes one an EXCEPTIONALLY terrible person
that should go and re-thing their life purpose! End of discussion.
