    Freedom of speech doesn't cover speech intended to incite panic ("fire" in a crowded theater) or to incite violence (inciting an planning terrorism) or to spread obvious misinformation or libel (vote by mail is fraught with fraud) which any reasonable person could fact check. That is distinct from sincere beliefs (religious writings). Amplifying patent falsehoods or libel is not allowing free speech, it is tearing the fabric of society by promoting distrust in all our social constructs. Chaos is not freedom.
