    We were inundated today with debates on almost every channel on the limits of freedom of expression vis a vis Aseem Trivedi! Was very disappointed that Texas vs Johnson landmark judgment was not mentioned even once-that is my own personal position in particular Justice Anthony Kennedy’s judgment_

    “For we are presented with a clear and simple statute to be judged against a pure command of the Constitution. The outcome can be laid at no door but ours. The hard fact is that sometimes we must make decisions we do not like. We make them because they are right, right in the sense that the law and the Constitution, as we see them, compel the result. And so great is our commitment to the process that, except in the rare case, we do not pause to express distaste for the result, perhaps for fear of undermining a valued principle that dictates the decision. This is one of those rare cases. Though symbols often are what we ourselves make of them, the flag is constant in expressing beliefs Americans share, beliefs in law and peace and that freedom which sustains the human spirit. The case here today forces recognition of the costs to which those beliefs commit us. It is poignant but fundamental that the flag protects those who hold it in contempt.”

    Kanchan Gupta as
    usual comes out clear with his thoughts ….the diminishing trust in the state machinery is the real issue ……….Madhu Trehan tried her best to argue for freedom of social media, I may not agree with some of the examples she quoted . Prof Depankar Gupta as usual was broad basing with irrelevant examples nothing to do with the context being spoken …..He was seen in sync with Manish Tiwari
