I’m just curious. When I was a sophomore in college, I heard for the first time: “I may not agree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”

That’s always worked for me, and I’ve had some fascinating conversations over the past 25 years due to my willingness to let others share their differing points of view, without trying to convert them to mine. I’m curious as to what y’all think, or how you define it.

My curiosity stems from the Left’s constant assertions that the Right is strangling free speech (crushing dissent, etc), and the Right’s assertions of the same actions on the part of the Left.
