New Ideal Live – Does Social Media Censor?: A Conversation with Steve Simpson

In recent weeks, social media companies have suspended or deactivated the accounts of President Trump and many of his supporters, and major IT companies have stopped hosting "alternative" social media platforms, causing them to go offline. Many are claiming this is a new kind of censorship. Is "deplatforming" by private companies really censorship? What about when it is done under the pressure of government? And what about the now notorious Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which shields internet platforms from liability for the content their users post? Join Ben Bayer and his guest Steve Simpson, Senior Attorney at the Pacific Legal Foundation, to discuss these and related issues.

New Ideal Live – What it means to truly live: The Enduring Power of Ayn Rand’s We the Living

Although set in post-revolutionary Russia, Ayn Rand’s We the Living is a novel of timeless significance -- not only about the evil of collectivism, but also about what it means to truly live. The novel’s young heroine, Kira, is passionately devoted to her own life. In her unflagging pursuit of her values in the face of a brutal regime, there are universal lessons for us all. Join Onkar Ghate, Robert Mayhew, and Elan Journo on Feb. 2nd -- Ayn Rand’s birthday -- for a conversation about the life-affirming meaning of Rand’s first, yet least known, novel.
