Martin comments:

Freedom of speech is a very good and necessary thing indeed.
As with all freedom, however, it is imperative that people learn to operate
within certain self-imposed boundaries, having to do with the rights

Now, having said this, this doesn't mean I'm not interested in your *ideas*.
In fact, I'm going to discuss your views on karma and reincarnation thoroughly
with you, if you can stand severe scrutiny and dissecting of your opinions
on these things.
