Leading the majority and the minority.

When we hear or say: "you are free to go your own way" or " you are free to disagree"... do we actually mean that? The answer to that question goes to the heart of liberty and respect for the rights of others. Disagreement is just that.. and a free people must always maintain that right. That pesky first amendment is a messy thing.. but it is so very critical and it applies all the more now that it has become so easy to use speech and reach so many with one's ideas. Power must NEVER be used to quell or "manage" the right to speak... and those in power would do well to listen to the minority... as it is likely at some point to become the majority in the cycle of things.
