      is surely announcing primly "The correct response to bad words is good words, not censorship."

            is based on a belief in absolute personal freedom of action no matter the consequences to others. It is a about the complete rejection of personal responsibility or any constraints, and total embrace of selfishness.

            I.e. it's the political ideology of sociopathology. Literally.

            One of the purposes of government is to protect society from such people.
