What is freedom of speech?
Freedom of speech is the right to communicate one's opinions and ideas without fear of government retaliation or censorship. The term freedom of expression is sometimes used synonymously, but includes any act of seeking, receiving and imparting information or ideas, regardless of the medium used.

The only time one can freely express oneself is when there is trust. In fact, without trust there is no freedom of speech. For example, a husband and wife that trust each other can speak freely as long as no one else is listening into their conversation. That
is the freedom of speech. There is no fear, no second thought but one speaks from one's heart without any diplomacy or communication tactics. Therefore, one may say that it is unwise to exercise one's right to freely express oneself in front of people one do not trust.

The government does not trust its own citizens, employers their employees, employees their colleagues and natives do trust the foreigners they once welcome.
