In my opinion, there need to more debates about the boundaries between freedom of expression, and the limitations imposed by society on the grounds on modesty and morality and religion. There also need to be debates about the very concept of democracy itself.

Obviously, on top of all that, there need to be more “open” debates about these issues.

By “open” debate, I mean a debate in which participants set aside their beliefs, norms and values i.e. participants should conduct their debate based on reason and facts. Unfortunately this is very difficult to do.
