The more I read articles, such as Professor Ash, on Charlie Hebdo, on free speech (Oxford Today, Trinity 2015), the more I am left with the sad reflection that it is not really free speech that is threatened. The entire thinking world salutes free speech and those who do not, cannot or do not wish to think straight.

Rather it seems to be a death wish by a group of people whose effort and life sadly seems to be wasted and who inadvertently drag others to death alongside with them.

This looks like folly, not martyrdom.
