If a large enough group of someones is willing to kill you for saying something, then it’s something that almost certainly needs to be said, because otherwise the violent have veto power over liberal civilization, and when that scenario obtains it isn’t really a liberal civilization any more.

Quoted from Ross Douthat – New York Times. Credit to Jen Robertson for picking up on this thought provoking libertarian view.
