Many of us Aussies aren't particularly enamoured with the US idea of free speech, We believe in a certain amount of freedom of expression but we have laws against hate speech here, laws that have been used on both sides of this coin recently. A very good thing I think. So we might be talking about different things. Your nations fringes are full of loud loonies. We are lucky ours are usually pretty quiet in comparison unless they're in parliament. Later.
As both of our nations have legal systems based upon English Common Law, while there are differences, how we view speech freedom has much more in common than different.
