Quote from Henry Steele Commager 

"The justification and the purpose of freedom of speech
is not to indulge those who want to speak their minds.
It is to prevent error and discover truth.
There may be other ways of detecting error and
discovering truth than that of free discussion,
but so far we have not found them."
