But I think that the freedom of speech should come with some degree of responsibility, particularly since it is often used solely as a means to offend or "get a laugh" -- as was perhaps (or most likely) the case with the cartoons published by this newspaper. What else could their intentions have been?
Are you suggesting we should ban satire? Or do you want state-controlled censorship?

Why not ask some people who lived behind the Iron curtain what it was like to live under that sort of regime?
