Yes.

All freedom is constrained, that's obvious to all but small children.

But it is constrained by the law, and only in so far as the law is protecting the freedom of other people.

It's all in the Déclaration des Droits de l'Homme et du Citoyen of 1789.

Art. 11. La libre communication des pensées et des opinions est un des droits les plus précieux de l'Homme : tout Citoyen peut donc parler, écrire, imprimer librement, sauf à répondre de l'abus de cette liberté dans les cas déterminés par la Loi.

No he's saying don't be a dick.

No he's not.

He said "don't be a dick or you might get punched in the face", which is devoid of moral content.

He's confirming Kurt Vonneguts criticism of christianity -- what's wrong with the story of the death of Jesus is that it tells you not to nail the son of God to a cross instead of teaching you that it's a bad idea to nail people to pieces of wood.
