"Having the right to speak freely has absolutely nothing to do with the merits of what is being said. Indeed, if speech has obvious merits, it hardly needs protection. Only when it prompts some people -- who fail to grasp what it is to have such a right -- –to move to legally silence those whose views they find objectionable does the protection of the right achieve its central objective."
