Charles Bradlaugh Quote

“Without free speech no search for truth is possible... no discovery of truth is useful. Better a thousand fold abuse of free speech than denial of free speech. The abuse dies in a day, but the denial slays the life of the people.”

Charles BradlaughCharles Bradlaugh
~ Charles Bradlaugh

Speech, 1890

Ratings and Comments

Patrick Henry, Red Hill

A Creator conferred, unalienable Right that is inestimable to a Free People and formidable to tyrants and tyrants-in-waiting only.

Mike, Norwalk

Current events cry the accuracy of the quote's subject matter. Socialists, liberals, progressives, other malefactors, etc. claim foul against free speech when they are called-out on their false and misleading narratives. Supporting patrons of the occupying statist theocracy infesting this land fain moral superiority when burning books and denying free speech to all those that would oppose their dogmas and activities.

jim k, Austin

Free speech is verboten in most colleges today. 

E Archer, NYC

The search for truth requires the telling of the truth.
