What exactly is the freedom of speech? And why is freedom of speech such an important topic, especially now?
It's important because, of course, freedom of speech is under assault.
There is a false premise that freedom of speech must be balanced against public safety and individual security which, unfortunately, most people seem to accept.
Freedom of speech comes from a surprising source, and when you understand what that source is, the confusions and distortions of freedom of speech promoted by both well-meaning and evil people become very clear.
In the end, as with all liberties, you get to keep the liberties that you are prepared to fight for. Unfortunately, few people are prepared to fight for any of their liberties today, including the right to free speech. - - - - - - - - - - -
