The atrocious events happened in the peaceful afternoon of January 7th, 2015 in Paris, when radical Islamists stormed the office of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo.The attacks raised many questions on exteremism, religion, values and tensions in French society, but the most heated debates were on the topic of the freedom of speech: do we have the right to make fun of everything? Do we have the right to mock or ridicule other people’s deeply rooted beliefs? Did Charlie Hebdo have the right, from a legal and moral standpoint, to go as far as they did?
Freedom of Speech is Not Absolute
Freedom of speech is not negotiable
