Is the First Amendment Enough?
From the attack on Charlie Hebdo to campus speech codes, it is clear that freedom of speech faces significant threats today. Unlike the rest of the world, America has the First Amendment to protect this right. But is the First Amendment enough?
In this talk, “Is the First Amendment Enough?” Steve Simpson, ARI’s director of legal studies, will explain why the legal right to free speech won’t survive if people abandon free speech as a moral value. To keep this precious right, we need to convince people that free speech isn’t just something we must tolerate, but that it is a value we should embrace.
Join Simpson for this free event at ARI Headquarters in Irvine, California, on Tuesday, March 22, 2016, at 7:00 p.m. Register here.
