When one million French protestors take to the streets to scream over the so-called injustice of a law recognizing the right of employers to fire young employees without cause, but only a brave few take a stand over the blatant attempt to curtail freedom of speech in the recent reaction to the Danish cartoons, one knows that Europeans are abandoning individual rights.

There is no right not to be fired from a job, at any age, by any employer. Employers, those footing the salaries of the employees, have the right to hire the best available and to fire the incompetent. But there is a right to express your thoughts, regardless of whether they offend someone — without the right to offend, freedom of speech is meaningless.
