   If is for the good of mankind, why not break a license? See, in any
   country in the world, individual rights can be broken to benefit
   the the society.

Can and should are completly different things, anyone can kill you,
but does this mean that they should?  Breaking any kind of rights is a
slippery slope, if someone considers it a good thing to break the
rights of all blue people in the world then they should be allowed by
your rethoric, so something like the holocaust was quite valid and
nobody should have stoped it.  Yes, this is in the extreme, but it
shows a point; rights are still rights no matter if they are about
life or speech.

   The worse thing is to have a name for something people should do

You have a name for free speech to, which is also something people
"should" do naturally.  Should this also be removed based on the sole
reason that it is soemthing people should do naturally?
