“To have a right to do a thing is not at all the same as to be right in doing it”

By G. K. Chesterton

Some people need to realize this.

Freedom of expression does not mean you are always correct.

Freedom of speech does not mean your words are harmless.

Freedom of the press does not mean you should poke your nose into everything.

I am not suggesting that all these freedoms are wrong. I just wanted to say that next time you claim something under the name of “freedom”, it might be a good idea to ask yourself first whether what you are doing is something you can be proud of in 10 years.

The fundamental idea in “freedom” may be that you have a right to do anything, but it does not mean whatever you do is right socially, morally and humanly.
