In this talk, ARI director of legal studies Steve Simpson puts the recent attacks on free speech in a wider cultural context, and analyzes the ideas and arguments that are used to undermine the public’s understanding and appreciation of the freedom of speech.
Questions covered in the Q&A:
- Is there a conflict between truth and public safety?
- What is an “incitement to violence”?
- What is the definition of “hate speech”?
- What is wrong with the government arresting people for telling lies?
This talk was recorded on March 22, 2016, at ARI headquarters in Irvine, California.
