Freedom of spee-

…And now for something completely different:

At public lectures in the States, one would get shot down for using Q&A time for making comments and objections AT the speaker, as opposed to posing a question in front of the audience for the speaker to answer in a formal fashion.

At an Israeli public lecture, people don’t ask questions during Q&A time. They make comments. They argue with the speaker, they outspeak the speaker, they speak out of their own personal experience towards the speaker, as if the speaker’s experience, of which he is brought in to speak, can’t possibly prove his point enough.

The lesson learned: I don’t know which country is truly based on democracy and freedom of speech and expression, and which is based on respect out of history of torment.
