My take :

Conc : it is also the only rational policy for this government to adopt
Why ? : Some advantages ....

(A) Most citizens would tolerate some limits on freedom of speech --> limiting is out of scope
(B) With or without a policy of freedom of speech, governments respond to dangerous ideas irrationally -->2 issues that i find here, A, with or without, --> this implies freedom of speech has no effect, 2. the scope of the argument is too narrow,we also have other benefits of FOS what about them ?
(C) Freedom of religion and freedom of assembly are also basic human rights than governments must recognize --> argument is not really concerned with freedom of religion and assembly.
(D) Governments are less likely to be overthrown if they openly adopt a policy allowing freedom of speech --> Looks good, gives a motive for the govt to accept the policy.
(E) Great ideas have flourished in societies that repress free speech as often as in those that permit it --> this negates somewhat.
