There’s an excellent article on Reason Online on one of my recent fave topics – “Boss Talk: Why celebrities should never shut upbut stop complaining“.
I agree completely – *everyone* in the US has the right to speak their point of view, but don’t expect everyone to agree with you. And remember that the people that disagree with you *also* have the right to voice their opinions, and their choice of expression may be the boycott of your album/movie/tv show. It’s a two-way street.
I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.
