Free speech = abuse

With the Olympics finally over (and while we’re waiting on the reports on their doubtlessly disastrous long-term effect on the Chinese people, their environment and economic situation), here’s a nice cartoon from De Morgen by Flemish artist Kim Duchateau about a new Olympic discipline, the 100 meters free speech.

Besides the fact that this cartoon uses traditional cartoon elements like word balloons in a nice, formalistic manner, I particularly liked Kim’s implicaiton that free speech automatically entails uncouth language and verbal abuse.
