Bravo, it is more important now than ever to speak out against the bullies who wish to impose their warped ideology on society. Too many people of fought and died to create a civil society in which we have the right to speak, worship and live as we choose to, allow these terrorists to destroy it.


Don't these writers like Gary Trudeau realize that their rationalization of the attacks on Charlie Hebdo taken to their logical conclusion justify all the attacks that writers have experienced around the world? Essentially, taken on face value, PEN's aim is unjustifiable. If freedom of expression is to mean anything, it is to protect the unpopular and insulting speech.

To say that you have the freedom to express yourself when nobody objects to what you have to say, makes this freedom worthless.
