As a theoretical Government ideology, then yes, but in reality an insult will can take away your freedom. Just as separation of Church and State. In theory for an Ideal Government, maybe, yet remains unstable. In practice, church is in the people who run our government. We are one Nation under God! My point is there are conditions, circumstances, and intents that will factor to decisions. I do not live in a theoretical world. My world is quite real. If you go to a local Police Officer and start shouting insults. You enjoyment of a delusional freedom of speech will end very shortly. And for the opposing comment who believes Bob can tell John that he is ugly under freedom of speech is delusional. His fantasy will end when John punches him in the face, or one of John's friends punches Bob in the face. Try taking that physical assault to any Judge while arguing why you called "ugly" to a man with a disfigured face, and demand satisfaction for being hit in the face in response. I can hear the court laughing now! Free speech, is not free willy.
