On Speech

Ronald Dworkin ... argued that speech should be protected in part because citizens have a “moral responsibility…not only to form convictions of one’s own, but to express these to others, out of respect and concern for them, and out of a compelling desire that truth be known, justice served, and the good secured.”
An article argues this was the personal philosophy of Anthony Lewis and it influences my addiction of sorts to online comments. There is some egotism involved, yes, but also a personal evangelical desire to share and argue. I think I have insights to contribute and a certain mindset to provide them better than certain others. It's fun, but more that that.
