Freeing speech vs. freedom of speech.

The loss of "freedom of speech" is the end of all freedoms.

Equally dangerous but less acknowledged is "freeing speech," which is a form of liberation from meaning. We lose correspondence and consensus once interpretation is impossible because it relies on subjective feeling.

The specificity of language tends to dissolve, stretch, or spread, but when attenuated beyond commonality, there is no communication, just noises of pain or appreciation.
