Quote from H. L. Mencken,

"I believe there is a limit beyond which free speech cannot go,
but it's a limit that's very seldom mentioned. It's the point
where free speech begins to collide with the right to privacy. I
don't think there are any other conditions to free speech. I've
got a right to say and believe anything I please, but I haven't
got a right to press it on anybody else. .... Nobody's
got a
right to be a nuisance to his neighbors."


H. L. Mencken (more quotes by H. L. Mencken or books by/about H. L. Mencken)

(1880-1956) American Journalist, Editor, Essayist, Linguist, Lexicographer, and Critic
