Free Speech – The Hitch!

What a guy Hitch was. Half drunk all the time (he’s drinking Johnnie Walker Scotch out of a damn brandy glass in this video!), chain smoking, yet still  able AND willing to mop the floor intellectually with anyone on Earth.

I am also a free-speech absolutist – anything whatsoever is allowed to be said, no exceptions – because as soon as you allow certain exceptions, you’ll be starting down a whirlpool of ever-diminishing things allowed to be said. Every outraged person out there will want their special ‘trigger’ words to be outlawed, and eventually we’ll have criminal charges laid on people just for saying slightly morally questionable things. Not good.

Either anything and everything is allowed, or nothing is allowed – hence ‘absolutist’.
