Bad ideas too. The merits of an idea are subjective. But free speech is a right simply because for it not to be would be wrong. That's all.

Your description is circular.  "X is a right because it would be wrong otherwise."  It doesn't say anything.

There must be a reason we have rights other than it's a 'good thing'.
