Free speech is under attack in three ways. First, repression by governments has increased. Second, a worrying number of non-state actors are enforcing censorship by assassination.

Win the argument without resorting to force. And grow a tougher hide.” http://www.economist.com/news/leaders/21699909-curbs-free-speech-are-growing-tighter-it-time-speak-out-under-attack
