What About Criminal Conspiracies with Religious Motives?
At a free speech panel last summer, an audience member asked: “How would you apply the question of free speech to radical Islamic preachers like Anjem Choudary and people like that, who are calling for the downfall of the West and sometimes directly inciting violence? Should they be silenced? Or should they be free to say what they feel?”
The responding panelists are Steve Simpson, director of Legal Studies at the Ayn Rand Institute and editor of Defending Free Speech; Flemming Rose, author of Tyranny of Silence: How One Cartoon Ignited a Global Debate on the Future of Free Speech, and Dave Rubin, creator and host of the Rubin Report.
The event, “Free Speech Under Attack,” took place at Objectivist Summer Conference 2017 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on Tuesday, June 13, 2017.
