SHOULD THERE BE LIMITS TO FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION?


Immediately after the horrific Charlie Hebdo attack, people started to cry out “Je suis Charlie”or “I am Charlie” but how honest where they really being? Would they like to be Charlie or would they not like to be Charlie and were going with the flow? To what extend does everyone really support freedom of expression? Voltaire said even if he disagreed, he would defend to the last someone’s right to free speech. Was he going too far or was he right? Do your research and make up your mind. Then write an argumentative essay.
