Hitchens on free speech

In the clip below Christopher Hitchens gives a passionate lecture in defence of free speech, and convincingly demonstrates how dangerous it is to restrict people’s rights to express their views, no matter of ignorant or stupid they might be. The talk was given at the University of Toronto, in opposition to a proposed amendment that would criminalise so called hate speech. The speech is about 20 minutes long, and well worth the time.
