Free Speech Leftists Still Exist - Quillette
So here is my advice – those who emotionally resonate with the political right should seek to explore the rational arguments on the left, and those who resonate with the left should seek to understand the rational traditions of the right. If we become more like our enemies, or understand the souls of our enemies, perhaps we will find the enemy outside to evaporate, and locate a more ordered republic within. After all, that is the ultimate goal of all free and open discourse – to reach a higher vantage point through discussion than two eternally conflicting, isolated sides can ever achieve on their own.

Book World: Dubious arguments for curbing the free speech of Nazis - The Edwardsville Intelligencer
“An example of the zero-sum game from Europe may be instructive: In Turkey it is a crime to say the Armenian genocide occurred, while in France it is a crime to say it didn't occur.”

One year after the Women’s March on Washington, people are still protesting en masse. A lot. We’ve counted.
About 74 percent of those protests were either against Trump administration policy or on issues that conflicted with the president’s viewpoint, such as protests against specific police shootings of black people. We assuredly did not learn about every protest. Given the information we had, however, we made a low and a high estimate of all the participants in all the protests we counted, giving us a range of between 5.9 million and 9 million. That’s roughly 1.8 to 2.8% of the population of the United States, with about 5.2 million to 8 million of those turning out to oppose Trump’s policies or points of view.
