15. well of course
i suggest people who support laws against "incitement to hatred" take a look at some of the pamphlets extant at the time of the writing of our bill of rights. incitement to hatred was quite common. free speech cannot exist w/o the right to express hateful (in the eyes of some) ideas. of course, it is about tradeoffs, and i do agree to differ. i just don't ever want to see us going down the road the UK, france , canada etc. have gone vis a vis speech.
