ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the decision of an Eastern university in the U.S. and the pacifists which concluded that speech is not absolutely free. He notes that the savant who invented the phrase free speech is not urging his claims when war has suggested a return to real thinking. He also states that there is a time for speech and a time for silence.
