Freedom of Speech

A communist era joke sums up the current stand of most freedom of speech supporters:

An american and a Russian discusses Freedom of Speech in their countries. The American was proud of his country and said “You know we can protest against our President in front of White House.”  The Russian retorted, “And for that we would even get a Medal.”

India is in a similar situation. Except that you can expect a Padma Award
