Is there one answer?

I believe the definition of a difficulty questions is the ability to have two answer and believe in them both. This is not defining difficulty as double-think, but defining maturity as duality. There are very few situations which are black and white.

The story about the protest against the returning soldiers is an perfect illustration of this.

Is freedom of speech more important than a celebration of returing heroes.

As always there is a middle ground, there is a right to protest, but limits to free speech.

Freedom of speech does not extend to shouting fire in a crowded room.
