This is a fantastic statement by "Mr. Bean" (Rowan Atkinson) on free speech and the right to insult someone without being criminally charged.

It contains a great quote "Free Speech can only suffer if the law prevents us from dealing with it's consequences." And this is really the point, making laws to force people to be polite or silenced insulates us from bad ideas and potentially bad actors in society.

It is better to have people free to say what they want and then be judged or responded to based on the merits of their words and behavior.
