Speech is power…
Speech is powerful. It can stir people to action, move them to tears of both joy and sorrow and — as it did here — inflict great pain. On the facts before us, we cannot react to that pain by punishing the speaker. As a nation, we’ve chosen a different course — to protect even hurtful speech on public issues to ensure we don’t stifle public debate.
