Defending Free Speech [Video]

“To put it bluntly, free speech is under attack. . .” says Steve Simpson, director of Legal Studies at the Ayn Rand Institute. In this talk and Q&A given at the Heartland Institute in Chicago, Simpson argues that if we want to fight for free speech, we have to fight for the ideals on which it is based. He also discusses topics such as the Danish cartoon crisis, the recent Berkeley riots in response to provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos, free speech on college campuses and the government investigation into Exxon.
