Opinion formation is the tool available in a democratic society to change the world through democracy, or at least the immediate place. In our case, this includes the municipality, region, or the country of Sweden. It is the tool that best aligns with the idea that EVERYONE should have a voice, and everyone has the right to express themselves through the crucial freedom of speech in Sweden. In short, it is essential that EVERYONE, regardless of how unconventional their opinions and thoughts may be, should be able to express them. It is then the responsibility of the opposing party to respond to these, sometimes unconventional views, in a dignified manner. Speech should be met with speech. Nothing justifies violence, ever.
